Based on Mary Shelley’s 19th century novel, “Frankenstein” is expected to shoot in the fall after Radcliffe’s run in the West End play “Cripple of Inishmaan,” sources tell Variety. John Davis is producing the film, which is being described as a tale of friendship and redemption.
Radcliffe is coming off the Sundance hit “Kill Your Darlings” and can next be see in “The F Word” and Mandate’s “Horns.”
