New FRANKENSTEIN Film Gets a Plot Synopsis and a Title Change!
Paul McGuigan’s new FRANKENSTEIN adaptation has received a new name, and a plot synopsis has been revealed (via Collider).
The film will now be known as VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN. James McAvoy will be portraying the infamous scientist, though this film stands to take a somewhat different approach to the classic tale. Rather than focus on Doctor Frankenstein and his creation, the events of the story will be seen through the eyes of Frankenstein’s assistant, Igor (played by Daniel Radcliffe).
James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.
Igor is an interesting character, and a fascinating crux for a new version of the famous Frankenstein story. He wasn't a part of the material until Universal first introduced him in SON OF FRANKENSTEIN in 1939, but over the years, he has become a horror icon in and of himself.
Telling the events of FRANKENSTEIN from Igor's perspective is an interesting take on the material, and will no doubt add a new perspective to the well-known story.
VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN is set to open on October 2, 2015.
