According to The Hollywood Reporter, HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe is in late talks to star in Fox's upcoming adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic novel FRANKENSTEIN.
Radcliffe, surprisingly, is set to take on the role of 'Igor,' the hunchback who is "pathologically dirty, with long hair and wearing old clown clothes."
The project will be helmed by Paul McGuinan, and written by Max Landis (CHRONICLE). John Davis will produce the film for Fox.
The studio is reportedly eyeing a late summer start for the film, which will shoot in the UK.

Pierrepont Finch in the recent revival of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.
He will next appear on the big screen in the upcoming Kill Your Darlings, starring as the poet Allen Ginsberg.
