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!!
