Mary Shelley’s classic novel is turned to once again for another take on the famous monster story. James McAvoy is the crazed scientist in Victor Frankenstein.
This new twist on the tale is told from the perspective of Igor who in this version of the film is not a hump backed man but instead a fellow scientist. He is being played by Daniel Radcliff of ‘Harry Potter’ fame.
The film has been directed by Paul McGuigan who directed four episodes of BBC’s much acclaimed ‘Sherlock’. So far it all sounds very promising. Just to make sure, 20th Century Fox have released two slightly different trailers, both of which you can see below.
