VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN
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.

Release Date: October 2, 2015


Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis penned the script for Victor Frankenstein and is being directed by Paul McGuigan ("Sherlock"). Besides Radcliffe as Igor and McAvoy as Victor Von Frankenstein, actress Jessica Brown Findlay ("Downton Abbey") is the other lead. She plays "the object of Igor’s affection."

McAvoy, Radcliffe, Landis, and McGuigan make for an interesting grouping.

Looking forward to this!

I hope it's good, but it seems to me they've tried this sort of thing before with Julia Roberts and John Malkovich in Mary Reilly. Remember that one? Didn't think so.

EHHHH I NOR MY FRIENDS WILL BE SEEING THIS WE GOT PENNY DREADFUL THATS GOOD ENOUGH

Mcavoy,Radcliffe, and half of the cast and the director of Sherlock, count me in.
sKeemAn - 6/17/2014, 3:44 PM
Mcavoy, Radcliffe should make for an interesting relationship. That alone might be the price of admission.

Not Igor... Not Bono


Prince!!!

I hope James is as good as the kid on Penny Dreadful

A twist on the Frankenstein story hmm? Like the twist on Jekel & Hyde called Mary Reilly which starred Julia Roberts?? Meh.
Too soon for "Frankenstein" in another movie title. I'm still ROFL AT Aaron Eckhart's lame "I, Frankenstein". And oh boy here we go again with Mr. Emo himself Prof. James McXavier. He may have found his niche, now he'll be an emo mad scientist instead of an emo paralyzed telepath.

That frankenhooker will bring tears of joy to your eyes and testicles.

You junk uncle Jor is kidding? Go look it up.

Feankenhooker. It's gold.

A beau Igor?

I would like to see where they're going with this.
SuperDude001 - 6/17/2014, 5:29 PM
This looks cool but I really don't get why it is called 'Victor Frankenstein' if it's from Igor's perspective and that's the twist...like call it [frick]ing 'Igor'...

Radcliffe for a young Kurt Wagner?
BlindJustice - 6/17/2014, 8:44 PM
@MileHighRonin - Not a bad idea actually...

You had me at McGuigan.

"Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel."

Must be a big freaking twist on the novel, being that the main character (Igor) isn't even in the novel.

Sounds great everything with James McAvoy turns out to be great.

Is this puppy still acting?
DanoTheOld - 6/18/2014, 6:01 AM
I'm intrigued. I have really enjoyed Radcliff's post-Harry Potter career so far, so I'm game.

I hope Radcliffe shines in this. He needs to step out of the shadows of Harry Potter.
RetroFit - 6/18/2014, 7:07 AM
Radcliffe is the most grotty looking human being I have ever seen in my life.
