Daniel Radcliffe / Frankenstein

Last fall we learned that Daniel Radcliffe was interested in taking on another horror tale after moving from Harry Potter to The Woman in Black, and now months later that news has finally become more of a reality. Variety has word that Radcliffe is in final negotiations to star in Frankenstein, a revisionist take on the classic tale from Mary Shelley that will see the young British actor playing Igor. At this time, we're not certain if this adaptation written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis completely revamps the story, but it will definitely be the familiar tale told from the perspective of the hunchback who assists Dr. Frankenstein.

In fact, Landis told ShockTillYouDrop in 2011, "I began to pick apart our knowledge of Frankenstein and discovered that the public’s idea of this myth comes from a million different places. I became committed to recontextualizing it all so it all worked in one story." When news of Radcliffe's interest surfaces last September, the hunchback character was described as "pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing," so that's something different for the actor. Take this project along with Kill Your Darlings (read our Sundance review here) and the forthcoming Horns, and he's got quite a twisted career so far. Good?
