Victor Frankenstein Daniel Radcliffe monster movie plot details

New title and plot synopsis for Paul McGuigan’s Frankenstein, starring Daniel Radcliffe

Bride of FrankensteinPaul McGuigan’s upcoming Frankenstein movie, starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy, is now titled Victor Frankenstein.

The new plot synopsis, via Arrow In The Head, gives us a clearer idea of what we can expect to see from Max Landis’ script.

“James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man – and the legend – we know today.”

Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Mark Gatiss (The League Of Gentlemen) and Andrew Scott (Sherlock) co-star.

Victor Frankenstein is set for release on 2 October 2015. You can buy The Bride Of Frankenstein on Blu-ray for £7 at Amazon.co.uk.
