Daniel Radcliffe Interested In Playing The 'Hunchback' In FRANKENSTEIN
Apparently the Harry Potter actor is interested in playing the "lead role" of 'Hunchback' in Fox's planned adaptation of Mary Shelly's classic tale. The report also gives us a few hints of what to expect from Max Landis' script for the movie..
According to The Wrap, Harry Potter himself is interested in playing the "lead role of Hunchback" in Lucky Number Slevin director Paul McGuigan’s revisionist take on Frankenstein, which is currently in development at 20th Century Fox. They don't provide any more info on that, but do reveal a few tidbits about Chronicle scribe Max Landis' script. The fact that the Hunchback is described as the lead role is very interesting. They may just mean a lead role, however all signs point to this being a very different take on the story than we are used to, so who knows. The character is described as "pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing". Intrigued? You should be after this - the site also reveal that this will "put a sci-fi take on this classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.". And here we were expecting a classic version! What do you guys make of this, and the potential casting of Radcliffe?
