How Daniel Radcliffe will look like in "Frankenstein", the 20th Century Fox's reimagining of the horror classic, has been revealed in set picture. He wears a vintage three-piece suit and sports a pale makeup and a shoulder-length hair.
The "Harry Potter" actor plays Igor, the loyal assistant to Dr. Victor Frankenstein, in the upcoming film. Unlike Igor's traditional portrayal as a hunchback butler, "The Woman in Black" star doesn't seem to sport a deformed back in the photo.
The film is directed by Paul McGuigan ("Scandal", "Sherlock", "Smash"), with its script written by Max Landis ("Chronicle"). James McAvoy is cast as the titular mad scientist, while Jessica Brown Findlay will portray Igor's love interest.
The movie is set for January 16, 2015. "[Landis] taken the mythologies that we all think we know - we have this idea of a monster and a crazy scientist and kind of a hunchbacked assistant - but we don't really know where all these parts came from," Radcliffe once said.
"I think what Max has done with this is first of all he's given Igor a backstory which you never really see before," he added. "And so, that's I think one of the biggest differences is that you'll finally see him granted a life and a backstory and it's about these two young guys at the forefront of science."
