The story of Frankenstein is an age old classic, first published in 1818 by the young author Mary Shelley. The much loved horror tells the story of an eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Multiple film adaptations have been made and thousands of Halloweens have passed consisting of countless Frankenstein monster costumes, but finally we are getting a fresh and unique spin on the story via Daniel Radcliffe's next film "Victor Frankenstein." Check out the synopsis below:
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.
Directed by Paul McGuigan ("Sherlock"), the story will be told from the perspective of Igor, Radcliffe's character, a refreshingly new, unique take. Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis penned the script and besides Radcliffe as Igor, James McAvoy also stars as Victor Von Frankenstein. Actress Jessica Brown Findlay ("Downton Abbey") is the other lead, playing "the object of Igor’s affection."
The film is scheduled to be released October 2, 2015.
