Some new on-set images of the new Frankenstein adaptation have surfaced. In the film Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor, and for the role he had to grow his hair bigtime! “I don’t mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don’t know why any man would have it voluntarily,” he said. “The amount of work it takes, having to dry it – doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn’t be growing my hair this long in my own time.”
Radcliffe stars next to Jessica Brown Findlay and James McAvoy (playing Victor Frankenstein). Frankenstein is a new version of the story which is helmed by Paul McGuigan. The script has been written by Chronicle’s Max Landis, and will take a more horror/sci-fi approach to the Frankenstein story. Igor is not part of the original Mary Shelley Frankenstein story, but comes from Universal Studios own version of the story. The character starts out in Son Of Frankenstein as a disabled blacksmith, and in Ghost Of Frankenstein has his brain transplanted into the monster.
Frankenstein arrives in cinemas on next January.
