It’s alive! Here’s our first official look at James McAvoy as Dr. Victor Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe as his trusted assistant Igor from the upcoming film ‘Victor Frankenstein.’
“As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well,” McAvoy told Empire Magazine. “That was quite exciting. It’s funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way.”
James McAvoy is Victor 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 Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend – we know today.
Directed by Paul McGuigan. Written by Max Landis. Co-stars: Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Mark Gatiss.
