Daniel Radcliffe to star in Frankenstein?

Director Shawn Levy the man behind "Night At The Museum" 1 & 2, was set to be working a new version of "Frankenstein" for Fox in early 2012. However Paul McGuigan director of a few "Sherlock" episodes took over an we haven't heard a single thing since September, it appears that the movie is alive an still has legs. More news is surfacing that Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in the film as Igor, Variety are reporting that he is in final negotiations.

That does sound a little bit unusual, but the movie is based on a script written by Max Landis the genius behind "Chronicle". Landis' script focuses on Frankenstein's assistant, the movie is expected to put a new twist on the original Frakenstein story. The film is set to have a more of a Sci-Fi aspect to it, the deal for Radcliffe isn't 100% tied up of yet but if/when he signs on the film will move a lot more quickly I think. It's reported that Fox would like to start production on the film when Radcliffe wraps up his role in The Cripple Of Inishmaan stage play.
