Fox’s FRANKENSTEIN project takes on a new name
So this week we saw the unveiling of a poster for a new take on the Dracula legend, and today we have news on another classic film monster.
Fox have in the works a new take on Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN, and the film which was simply titled FRANKENSTEIN has had a name change. No nothing too drastic, it’ll be now known as VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN. Perhaps this is to make it clear to audiences that the monster itself was never called Frankenstein, and that was the name of his creator? It could work I guess.
The film features James McAvoy in the title role with Daniel ‘He’s no longer Harry Potter’ Radcliffe as Igor. The script is from Max Landis, son of John and directed by Paul McGuigan.
The film has a synopsis (see below) and with it being in the works we will certainly keep our eyes pealed on future news.
SYNOPSIS: 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.
