First Look at Daniel Radcliffe as Igor in Frankenstein

3 December 2013 4:41 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Daniel Radcliffe has just started shooting his upcoming "Frankenstein" film, in which he plays Igor. James McAvoy is playing The Monster, but the story is being told from Igor's perspective. Today, we have the first set photos of Radcliffe as the famous assistant, who's known for being a hunchback. In this version, Igor seems pretty normal. But that may change as filming continues. Check out the photos below. "Frankenstein" is directed by Paul McGuigan (Push, Lucky Number Slevin), and co-stars Jessica Brown Findlay as a trapeze artist who befriends Igor after he saves her from an accident. The new movie is set to hit theaters on January 16th, 2015. Photos: (click to enlarge) »

First Look Image: Daniel Radcliffe on Set of Frankenstein

2 December 2013 7:23 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Paul McGuigan’s Frankenstein marks the latest adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, bringing the monster and his eponymous creator to the big screen once more.

What makes this adaptation all the more interesting is its leading cast, with James McAvoy playing Victor Von Frankenstein, Daniel Radcliffe starring as his assistant Igor, and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay taking the female lead as Lorelei, a beautiful circus performer who forms a close bond with Igor.

Interestingly, Fox recently pushed the release date out of the expected Halloween 2014 window into early 2015. But the January slot is becoming more and more a place for horror films to make a name for themselves, and with the studio simultaneously dating David Fincher’s Gone Girl for October next year, it’s understandable that they’d want to push Frankenstein a little further down the line. Production is now getting underway, and with »

Downton Abbey Star Jessica Brown Findlay Joins Frankenstein

11 September 2013 12:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay has signed on to play the female lead in 20th Century Fox's Frankenstein reboot.

Daniel Radcliffe is starring as Igor with James McAvoy playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein in this revisionist version that tells Mary Shelley's classic story from Igor's perspective. Jessica Brown Findlay stars as a trapeze artist who becomes close to Igor after he saved her life. Here's what Daniel Radcliffe had to say about the story at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.

"It's about two young, brilliant guys pushing each other. Eventually one loses his morality and the other has to bring him back."

Paul McGuigan (Push, Lucky Number Slevin) is directing from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle). Production is scheduled to begin sometime this fall in London.

Aside from playing Lady Sybil on Downton Abbey, Jessica Brown Findlay also starred in the 2011 U.K. drama Albatross, and »

James McAvoy May Play Dr. Frankenstein to Daniel Radcliffe’s Igor

25 July 2013 8:01 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Although Daniel Radcliffe as Igor was basically enough to sell a new Frankenstein movie already, James McAvoy (Trance, X-Men: First Class) is now thinking about coming aboard as Baron Victor Von Frankenstein. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push) is directing from a script by Chronicle writer Max Landis. Aaron Eckhart won't be playing the monster, because he's doing that in another movie already. »

James McAvoy Confirmed as Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein in Frankenstein Reboot

25 July 2013 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has chosen James McAvoy to play Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein in the studio's remake Frankenstein, with negotiations currently under way. The actor reportedly beat out Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) for the role.

We reported back in February that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is portraying Dr. Frankenstein's assistant Igor. The story is said to be a revisionist take on Mary Shelley's original novel, addressing themes such as friendship and redemption, along with a sci-fi twist.

Paul McGuigan (Push) is directing from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle), with John Davis producing through his Davis Entertainment banner. No production schedule was released.

James McAvoy is coming off roles in Welcome to the Punch and Trance earlier this year, and he will next be seen in Filth and the superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently shooting in Montreal. »

James McAvoy is Victor Von 'Frankenstein' to Daniel Radcliffe's Igor

25 July 2013 12:31 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since February of this year, Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe has been set to play Igor in a new telling of the classic Frankenstein story set up at Fox with Lucky Number Slevin and Push director Paul McGuigan working from a script by Chronicle scribe Max Landis. Now the studio has found their man to play the doctor who brings the iconic monster to life. Deadline has word that Fox's X-Men: First Class star James McAvoy will play Victor Von Frankenstein. Though lesser known names like Jack Huston ("Boardwalk Empire") and Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla) had been testing, clearly the bigger name won out. McAvoy just appeared in San Diego as part of the star-studded Comic-Con panel for X-Men: Days of Future Past. McAvoy has been popping up in all sorts of films lately from Danny Boyle's psychological heist thriller Trance to the R-rated, gritty crime thriller Filth, and »

'Resident Evil 6' Director: This Will Never Get Old

27 June 2013 6:58 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The people have spoken, and they want their "Resident Evil." In an interview with "The Star," director Paul W.S. Anderson said he'd be making the sixth installment in the slow-mo-iest movie series ever this fall. "I think the undead genre really plays to primal human fears," Anderson said regarding the popularity of zombies since his first "Resident Evil" film. "That kind of stuff never goes out of fashion. The themes of a zombie story are always good; they make for good filmmaking."

Right now the film is planned for a September 12, 2014 release. We know that the wizards from the Mr. X visual effects house will be on board for more creepy VFX magic. "Resident Evil: Retribution" was the fifth film in the canon and saw Alice (Milla Jovovich) trying to escape an underwater base and her captors, the nefarious Umbrella Corporation.

Daniel Radcliffe Could Be Joined By Toby Kebbell Or Jack Huston In New Frankenstein Adaptation

24 June 2013 6:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When it was announced earlier this month that 20th Century Fox had officially announced a release date for their upcoming version of Frankenstein, it was a clue that the production is finally ready focus on putting all of its pieces together in order to get ready for cameras to start rolling. It was revealed that Fox wants to have the movie ready to be released in theaters on October 17, 2014 - just in time for the celebration of Halloween - and while they have some key positions set, there's still quite a bit of work to be done. Screenwriter Max Landis, who wrote Chronicle and made headlines recently for bashing Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, has penned the script; Paul McGuigan, who hasn't directed a movie since 2009's Push, is helming the film, and Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe is attached to play Igor.

Who should direct the next James Bond movie?

6 March 2013 1:32 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s fair to say that Sam Mendes did a pretty good job with his James Bond film. Skyfall earned rave reviews, made $1 billion at the global box office, won two Oscars, featured the first actually-popular Bond song in forever, is generally credited with re-rescuing the Bond franchise from its most recent low point, and somehow managed to introduce all the old pre-Craig tropes (Moneypenny, Q, Monty Norman’s theme, M-as-a-Man) while still feeling fresh. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Bond producers wanted to bring Mendes back for another film — or possibly two more films, since Skyfall co-writer John Logan is reportedly working on a two-film saga. »

Daniel Radcliffe Getting His Igor on in Max Landis Written Frankenstein!!

1 March 2013 11:34 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Thanks to Variety breaking the news, it’s been announced that Daniel Radcliffe (The Woman In Black, a little movie series called Harry Potter?..) is in final talks to play Igor in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Frankenstein, written by Hollywood’s most hyper screenwriter, Max Landis (Chronicle), and to be directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push).

Set to also star in the upcoming Horns, an adaption of Joe Hill’s awesome novel, if all goes well, Radcliffe will begin filming Frankenstein this fall, following his run in the play Cripple of Inishmaan. Unlike most of any other adaptions of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, the script by Landis tells the story from the point of view of Dr. Frankenstein’s assistant, Igor. Sounds interesting, what do you Fright Fiends think? »

Daniel Radcliffe is in final talks for the starring role in Frankenstein.

The Harry Potter and Woman in Black actor is negotiating to play Igor in 20th Century Fox's gothic drama, Variety reports.

Radcliffe's Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson was today linked with the title role in Disney's Cinderella, and is said to be in very early talks for the Kenneth Branagh-directed live-action fairytale movie.

Daniel Radcliffe may have found a new master. The "Harry Potter" star is in final negotiations to play the hunchback in 20th Century Fox's "Frankenstein," an upcoming sci-fi spin on the classic tale that's being directed by Paul McGuigan ("Push," "Lucky Number Slevin") from a script by "Chronicle" writer Max Landis. Radcliffe was rumored to be circling the part several months back, though Variety is now confirming the deal. This new version of the subservient character, referred to as "Igor" in previous screen incarnations, has been described as "pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown's clothing." Production is slated for a »

What A Day To Die Hard – The Marathon Review

18 February 2013 11:07 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A little over a month ago, we posted that in celebration of it’s 25th anniversary there will be a Die Hard Marathon showing all four movies starting around Noon on February 13th followed by the premier of A Good Day To Die Hard at 10Pm getting out just before Midnight. That’s almost 12 action-packed hours of Die Hard awesomeness! As you can guess, there was no way I could refuse to take this opportunity to see one of the greatest action-movie series of all time for the first time on the big screen, or make that Mega-Screen since I decided to see this at Wehrenberg’s Chesterfield Galaxy 14 Cine, which in my opinion is one of the best movie theatres here in the St. Louis area. For $25 you got all five movies plus a collectable lanyard that entitles you to a 25% discount at concessions throughout the whole day and with their wide-selection, »

Hugh Jackman suited up for The Wolverine

1 February 2013 5:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As part of its latest superhero-heavy issue, Empire has released a new shot of Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) suited up - no, not that kind of suited up - as Logan in 20th Century Fox's upcoming X-Men solo sequel The Wolverine:

Empire also caught up with producer Hutch Parker, who offered up some details about the storyline for The Wolverine: "We pick up Logan in a very isolated state, full of self-loathing. He is sought out by a young Asian woman for reasons he doesn't fully understand, who is asking him to follow her to Japan where he is meant to reconnect with someone from his past and what you'll come to find is that this is someone he spent prison-time with in Nagasaki. And the legacy of that experience - effectively Logan saved him - is that this man is on his deathbed, and is looking to give him a gift, »

James Mangold talks The Wolverine

24 January 2013 11:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the July release date on the horizon, we can expect a trailer for Wolverine's second solo X-Men outing very soon. But before that, director James Mangold talked to MTV about The Wolverine and what we can expect from it.

"The wonderful opportunity for me with this film is that 90 percent of it takes place in Japan," he said. "And even though other elements remain constant from the other pictures, namely Hugh Jackman, we kind of got our chance to reboot the tone and go a little darker and a little deeper than they've gone before with this character. That was exciting for me."

As one would expect with 90% of the movie set in Japan, there are a lot of Japanese elements to the movie which Mangold also discusses: "There is a significant amount of Japanese spoken in the movie, and the cast is almost entirely Japanese. So there is »

Sundance 2013: 'A.C.O.D.' stars Amy Poehler and Adam Scott are over the moon

24 January 2013 8:14 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

For fans of Parks and Recreation, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott are television’s most adorable couple. But in A.C.O.D., the Sundance movie about an Adult Child of Divorce (Scott) who’s never really recovered from the trauma of his parents’ split, their relationship could not be chillier. Poehler plays Scott’s pushy step-mother — and the landlord of his restaurant — and she’s not afraid to throw her influence around. (Imagine if Leslie Knope had grown up in Eagleton and you get the idea.)

The film, which premiered last night, reunites Scott with his Step Brothers father, Richard Jenkins, and his Party Down pal, »
