Interesting casting news talk coming out of Fox’s Frankenstein camp. It sounds as if Mr. Potter is ready to do some toiling in a completely different kind of alchemy lab. Read on for details.
According to The Wrap, Daniel Radcliffe is interested in playing the lead role of Hunchback in Paul McGuigan’s revisionist take on the classic tale of Frankenstein. The film is in the works at Twentieth Century Fox, where the focus for now is getting a finalized script, at which point serious talks will begin with actors, says a source close to the project.
Earlier this month, McGuigan signed on to direct the film for Fox and producers Davis Entertainment.
Based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), this adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel of the same name, puts a sci-fi take on this classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment. Hunchback is described as pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing.
