Thanks to Empire, we have our first look at Victor Frankenstein, the latest installment based on Mary Shelley’s novel. The film will star James McAvoy as Dr. Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) as Igor. The film gives us a different spin on the classic tale, using Igor’s perspective and focusing on his friendship with Frankenstein.
McAvoy said: “As much as the monster is his creation, Igor is his creation as well. That was quite exciting. It’s funny, the script, but also really dark, in a cool way.”
The film also stars Mark Gatiss, Jessica Brown Findlay and Andrew Scott. It will debut in theaters October 2, 2015.
