Daniel Radcliffe is said to be in final negotiations to headline Twentieth Century Fox's upcoming re-adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Variety has the news, saying that the Harry Potter star will play the leading role of Igor.
Paul McGuigan (Push, Lucky Number Slevin) is attached to direct the project, planned to begin production later this year. The film is scripted by Max Landis (Chronicle).
"I began to pick apart our knowledge of 'Frankenstein' and discovered that the publicís idea of this myth comes from a million different places," Landis told ShockTillYouDrop.com in 2011. "...I became committed to recontextualizing it all so it all worked in one story. By the end of the day, itís a period piece and yes, itís from Igorís perspective, but man itís cool. Itís the best thing Iíve written."
