Mary Shelley’s classic gothic horror novel gets another crack at the big-screen later this year with GANGSTER NO.1 director Paul McGuigan bringing us VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN from a screenplay by CHRONICLE’s Max Landis. Told from the point-of-view of the mad doctor’s servant, Igor, Scottish thespian James McAvoy takes on the unorthodox title character, while HARRY POTTER himself, Daniel Radcliffe, digs up the bodies as the loyal and twisted sidekick.
James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe star in a dynamic and thrilling twist on a legendary tale. Radical scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) and his equally brilliant protégé Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe) share a noble vision of aiding humanity through their groundbreaking research into immortality. But Victor’s experiments go too far, and his obsession has horrifying consequences. Only Igor can bring his friend back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation.
Check out a collection of featurettes with both McAvoy and Radcliffe talking up their respective roles.
20th Century Fox’s VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN arrives in US cinemas November 25 and the UK December 4, and co-stars Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott and Freddie Fox.
