Jess is about to start work on a new film loosely based on the legend of Frankenstein. Written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, TV’s Sherlock), alongside James McAvoy as Victor Von Frankenstein, and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor.

McAvoy recently spoke of the forthcoming flick in an interview…

“We’re shooting in January” he revealed. “We had our first day of rehearsal last week with Jessica, Daniel and Paul our director and that was really good, really heartening. Everybody seems alright, so we’ll just see what happens.”

As for how it will compare with previous versions of the story, McAvoy explained:

“I don’t think I’ve ever watched a Frankenstein movie. I’ve read the book, but this isn’t based on Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein that much. It’s taken from it, obviously, as inspiration, but it goes on its own path really.

“It’s more of an adventure and the relationship between these two guys – this brotherly relationship that we explore. It’s a really dark adventure – it’s not really an action movie but it’s got a lot of action in it. But it’s really about this relationship that forms the backbone of this adventure that they go on.”

20th Century Fox just moved the release date from October 17, 2014 to January 16, 2015 so we are going to have to wait a little bit longer for this one folks!
