Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a hot commodity these days. We’ve already seen Aaron Eckhart as Frankenstien’s monster and it was just announced that James McAvoy will be joining Paul McGuigan’s adaptation of the classic.
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.
