Brown Findlay for Frankenstein?

Jessica Brown Findlay is rumoured to be joining Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy in Frankenstein.

The Downton Abbey star is tipped to sign on to Paul McGuigan's as-yet-untitled project, which has been set up at 20th Century Fox, reported Variety.

Felicity Jones had previously been linked to the film.

The story has been kept under wraps, with Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis working on the film's script.

Daniel has already been cast as Igor, while James is to play Victor Von Frankenstein.

Jessica, who is best known for playing Lady Sybil Branson in the ITV period drama, has been carving out a career on the big screen since her exit in 2012.

The 23-year-old made her film debut in Niall MacCormick's coming-of-age film Albatross and is set to star in US drama Lullaby alongside Terrence Howard, Amy Adams and Jennifer Hudson. She's also starring in Akiva Goldman's Winter's Tale with Colin Farrell, Will Smith and Russell Crowe.
