Look, we all know we need another movie about Frankenstein and his monster like we need another story about an Avengers actor saying something dumb (ba dum bum), BUT, this is Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy we’re talking about, so…
I’m hoping even though Paul McGuigan (Sherlock, Wicker Park) and Max Landis’ (Chronicle) take on Shelley is being billed as a horror/drama, it’ll be more like a buddy comedy. While, the film is titled after the good, mad doctor (McAvoy), this outing will be told from Victor’s assistant, Igor’s (Radcliffe) viewpoint, chronicling his friendship with the young Frankenstein.
The film also stars Sherlock’s Andrew Scott as Roderick Turpin, and Mark Gatiss as Dettweiler, as well as Callum Turner as Alistair, and Jessica Brown Findlay as Lorelei, these are the first released images from the film:
