Daniel Radcliffe To Play The Hunchback In Fox’s ‘Frankenstein’?!

Harry Potter and The Woman in Black star Daniel Radcliffe is reportedly interested in playing the lead role of Hunchback in Paul McGuigan’s revisionist take on the classic tale Frankenstein, which is in the works over at Twentieth Century Fox, reports The Wrap.

A person familiar with the project told site that the focus for now is getting a finalized script for the film at which point serious talks will begin with actors. Earlier this month, McGuigan signed on to direct the film for Fox and producers Davis Entertainment. Shawn Levy was previously attached to the project but reportedly parted ways with Fox over budget issues.

Based on a script by Max Landis (Chronicle), this adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel of the same name, reportedly puts a sci-fi take on this classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment.

Hunchback is described as pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing.

Several dozen other “Frankenstein”-based projects are in the works in Hollywood.
