20th Century Fox Finally Settles on James McAvoy for Frankenstein
The search was ongoing for a while, but finally 20th Century Fox has found the actor they believe to be the right person to play Victor Von Frankenstein alongside Daniel Radliffe’s Igor in the Paul McGuigan-directed Frankenstein.
Per Deadline, the studio has chosen its X-Men: First Class star James McAvoy to portray the good doctor, and final negotiations are under way.
Paul McGuigan is at the helm of this revisionist take on Mary Shelley's masterpiece. Based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), this adaptation of Shelley's novel of the same name puts a more sci-fi spin on the classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.
The film is currently slated to arrive in theatres on October 17, 2014.
