Variety is reporting that Daniel Radcliffe is in final negotiations to star in Fox’s new vision of Frankenstein as Igor. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) has taken over the director’s chair and the film is based on a script written by Max Landis (Chronicle) that will focus heavily on Frankenstein’s assistant. I love the idea of Radcliffe jumping into new genres as it looks like he’ll be trading in his Horns for a hunched back.
You can expect to see a new take on the classic tale because the story is geared more towards the sci-fi realm rather than staying completely faithful to the novel. Right now it’s not a sure bet that he’ll be playing the hunch back but with his early interest in the project and now this latest news I would say that things look pretty likely. Once Radcliffe signs on things outta get moving pretty quickly for the film so expect much more out of this very soon.
