Before the concluon of the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe made a grand attempt to prove himself as an actor. He performed on Broadway, in independent dramas, psychological thrillers, and now he’s likely to play his most different role yet. Daniel is in talks to play Igor, the lead character of Max Landis‘ new direction take on Frankenstein. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) is set to be in the directors chair."I began to pick apart our knowledge of Frankenstein and discovered that the public’s idea of this myth comes from a million different places…I became committed to recontextualizing it all so it all worked in one story. By the end of the day, yeah it’s a period piece, yes it’s from Igor’s perspective, but man it’s cool….it’s the best thing I’ve written."
If this veron of Frankenstein, set up at 20th Century Fox, does start shooting this year, it might end up being the first out of a huge bunch of movies featuring the character at various different studios.
