Victor Frankenstein

Even though Daniel Radcliffe may not be doing magic anymore, that hasn't stopped him from dabbling in the supernatural still. The actor has gone on to star in the gothic horror The Woman in Black and the bold fantasy thriller Horns, and now he's heading into familiar classic territory with Victor Frankenstein, which puts a new spin on Mary Shelley's original novel. James McAvoy plays the title doctor known for bringing a dead man back to life, and Radcliffe plays his sidekick Igor, without that trademark hump. Some first look photos have surfaced from the set, though they show the production as opposed to the story.

Here's our first look at Paul McGuigan's Victor Frankenstein from Empire:

Victor Frankenstein is directed by Paul Mcguigan ("Sherlock") and written by Max Landis (Chronicle). Inspired by Mary Shelly's classic tale, but told from Igor’s (Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter) perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein (James McAvoy of X-Men Days of Future Past), and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man, and the legend, we know today. Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott and Mark Gatiss also star in the film that 20th Century Fox releases October 2nd.
