James McAvoy to Play Victor Von Frankenstein

Jason McDonald

It’s been quiet for some time now, but it looks like Fox has finally reignited new life into it’s upcoming Frankenstein project.  In this new take on the Frankenstein mythos, the film will be told primarily from the perspective of the Igor character, who will be played by Daniel Radcliffe (“The Woman in Black”).

However, you can’t have a Frankenstein movie without a proper Victor Von Frankenstein and Fox has finally found theirs in James McAvoy.  Deadline is reporting that the “X-Men: First Class” star has been tapped by Fox to take on the role of the foolish scientist who gives life to a monstrous creation.

The film is to be directed by Paul McGuigan whose last theatrical release was “Push” back in 2009.  The script is being handled by Max Landis who broke out with “Chronicle” in 2012.
