Victor Frankenstein is an upcoming American horror film based on contemporary adaptations of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein. It is directed by Paul McGuigan and written by Max Landis. Starring James McAvoy as the title character and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor, the film is expected to be released by 20th Century Fox on November 25, 2015.


Told from Igor's perspective, it shows the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man who created the legend we know today. The two's experiments eventually get them into trouble with the authorities and they are near to becoming fugitives as they complete their goals to use science to create life, with Frankenstein's ultimate endgame of creating a man.[1]



The project was first announced by 20th Century Fox in 2011 with Max Landis set to write the script.[8] In September 2012, it was announced that Paul McGuigan would direct the film.[9] Daniel Radcliffe also began talks to join the film that month and officially joined the cast as Igor in March 2013.[10] In July 2013, James McAvoy joined the cast to play Victor Frankenstein.[2] In September 2013, Jessica Brown Findlay joined the cast of the film.[3]

In October 2013, the film's release date was pushed back from October 17, 2014, to January 16, 2015.[11] In March 2014, the film was pushed back again to October 2, 2015.[12] Filming mostly took place in the United Kingdom, with stage filming at Longcross and Twickenham Film Studios and location shooting at Chatham Historic Dockyard.[13] Principal photography began on November 25, 2013, and ended on March 20, 2014.[14][15] In June 2015, the film's release date was pushed back from October 2, 2015, to November 25, 2015, which was first assigned to The Peanuts Movie and The Martian.[16]
