Daniel Radcliffe To Play Frankenstein's Little Helper??!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDaniel RadcliffeHarry PotterBookz

Daniel Radcliffe Frankenstein

The days of Hogwarts are becoming just a mere memory now.

Will Harry Potter be trading in his wand for…a lab coat??

Daniel Radcliffe is thisclose to officially signing on to play deformed hunchbacked helper Igor in a retelling of the classic horror story Frankenstein.

While the lead also has yet to be determined, the flick is described as a tale of friendship and redemption and will be penned by Max Landis and directed by Chronicle's John Davis .

Since playing the boy wizard, Daniel has strutted ALL his stuff on Broadway and starred in films like The Woman in Black and Kill Your Darlings, but could this be role that finally shakes off his Harry persona for good??

The movie— based on Mary Shelley's 19th century novel by the same name— is set to begin shooting this fall, so we'll just have to wait and see if he is up for the monstrous challenge!!

    It's my understanding this version of Frankenstein is from the perspective of Igor. Therefore, if/when Dan officially signs on, he will in fact be the lead. Just fyi.

  2. 2

    I'll be so glad when Hollywood gets over its current obsession with vampires, werewolves, witches and other assorted monsters.
    How about a few nice Westerns? Have not seen any in awhile.

    The author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelly did not write a character 'igor' this can't be a remake of the actual story simply a remake of a movie that was already made.. but hey if they are remaking The Wizard of OZ .. why not Frankenstein.

    I can't wait until Dan finally signs on to play Igor.because I'm super proud of him for going so far to shed that Harry Potter image.and I'll def see it.

    Re: ruth – There is not an original thought left in Hollywood. All they do is recycle old movies and add lots of special effects to hide the fact that there is such a weak script.
