Radcliffe in talks for Frankenstein

Daniel Radcliffe is reportedly set to play Igor in the Frankenstein remake

Daniel Radcliffe looks set to star in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Frankenstein.

The Harry Potter star is currently in final negotiations to take on the role of Igor in the film, reported Variety.

There were rumours last year that Daniel was interested in the part of the hunchbacked assistant to Dr Frankenstein, and it seems he is now close to signing up.

Little is known about the new sci-fi take on Mary Shelley's classic tale, but the character is thought to assist Henry Frankenstein in creating his monster and has been described as "pathologically dirty and dressed in old clown's clothing".

The film will be directed by Paul McGuigan.

Daniel, 23, has several movies in the pipeline including romantic comedy The F Word and Horns, in which he stars as a man who wakes up one day to discover that horns are growing from his head.

As a result, you won't be terribly popular. Many will complain about your methods, but nobody can argue with the results of your work. You know how to get the best performance from the people around you. That's a rare quality that should be championed. You should be gentler with people in your private life.More
