McAvoy joins Daniel Radcliffe, who signed on as Igor back in March. The film's screenwriter, Max Landis, has said that this version of Frankenstein will be "funny, sad, scary, and moving."

The as of yet untitled project is tentatively planned for a 2014 opening.

James McAvoy is a busy bee these days. Check him out in both this Filth trailer and these X-Men Days of Future Past posters now!
