Some fresh images of the currently filming Frankenstein adaptation have arrived this week, and you will find some of them below. In the film Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor, and for the role he had to grow his hair to a length which has made him sympathize with womens long hair.
“I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily,” he said.
“The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.”
Radcliffe stars next to Jessica Brown Findlay and James McAvoy (who will be playing Victor Frankenstein)
Frankenstein is a new version of the story which is directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push, Gangster Number 1). The script has been written by Chronicle’s Max Landis, and will take a sci-fi approach to the Frankenstein story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.
Igor, The Hunchback, is described as pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown’s clothing.
Igor (spelt Ygor) is not part of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, but comes from Universal’s own version of the story. He starts out in Son Of Frankenstein as a disabled blacksmith, and in Ghost Of Frankenstein has his brain transplanted into the monster.
Writer Landis has expressed an interest in exploring Igor’s character with this new film.
Frankenstein arrives in cinemas on January 16th 2015.
