Empire have scored two new images from the upcoming horror film, Victor Frankenstein. James McAvoy, who plays Dr Frankenstein in the latest adaptation of the famous tale, features in both images. Daniel Radliffe, who plays Frankenstein hunchback assistant Igor, features in the above image.
The early word on this twist on the famous story is that it is going to be very, very good.
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.
Writer Landis has expressed an interest in exploring Igor’s character with this new film.
Frankenstein arrives in cinemas on 25th September 2015.
James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.
