Daniel Radcliffe Eyes Lead Role in Fox's 'Frankenstein'

The star of 'Harry Potter' film series is said to be interested in playing Hunchback in the upcoming movie, which has Paul McGuigan signing on to direct.

Daniel Radcliffe has set his eyes on 20th Century Fox's untitled Frankenstein project for his next big-screen gig. The British actor is reportedly interested in portraying the lead character, Hunchback, in the movie adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel.

At this point, nothing is set on stones about the "Kill Your Darlings" actor's involvement since a script needs to be finalized first before serious talks will begin with any potential cast. Hunchback itself is described as "pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing."

Fox's Frankenstein is aimed to be a "sci-fi take on this classic story about a creature produced through a scientific experiment." Max Landis is tapped to pen the script, while Paul McGuigan is on board to direct after Shawn Levy departed the movie allegedly due to budget issues.

Several other "Frankenstein" projects are currently in development, including Lionsgate's "I, Frankenstein". The horror film is set for a September 13, 2013 release in the U.S. with Aaron Eckhart playing the titular character.
