Daniel Radcliffe in final talks for ‘Frankenstein’ role

Dan

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe previously expressed interest in playing the character Igor in 20th Century Fox’s remake of Frankenstein. It looks like that interest has led him to actually landing the role in the movie! The actor is in final negotiations with the studio. Paul McGuigan is set to direct the film from a script by Max Landis (Chronicle).

The movie is described as being a sci-fi take on the original Mary Shelley story, which focuses on themes of friendship and redemption. In a previous interview, Landis went into a bit more detail revealing that it will be a period piece told from the perspective of the character Igor, and all the interesting misconceptions surrounding the mythology of the story and character. The movie will also explore where Igor came from, and if Victor Frankenstein was actually a doctor or a drop out. It’s also said to be a tale of friendship and redemption.

The hunchback character Igor is described as being pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown’s clothing. I’m actually looking forward to seeing Radciffe as this character, I’m sure he’ll end up giving a great performance!

This is just another peculiar role Daniel’s taken on. What do you think of all his odd choices, and do you think “Frankenstein” will be a hit or miss?
