We've already seen a few pictures of Daniel Radcliffe as Igor for VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN, but the first official look at Radcliffe's Igor and James McAvoy as Dr. Frankenstein has landed online via Empire. Paul McGuigan (LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN, PUSH) directed the upcoming film from a script by CHRONICLE screenwriter Max Landis, and production on the monster movie wrapped up last month.

It's alive!

Official synopsis:

James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.

Empire also got a chance to visit the VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN set, and James McAvoy told the site that the script is funny, but also "really dark, in a cool way." What's your anticipation level for Paul McGuigan's new movie?

VICTOR FRANKENSTEIN also stars Sherlock's Andrew Scott (Moriarty) and Mark Gatiss (co-creator and Mycroft actor), Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay, and Callum Turner (QUEEN AND COUNTRY, E4's Glue), and is set to open on October 2, 2015.

Yah I agree its kind of blasphemous to even mention Shelley's name in association with this. As there is nothing in the novel remotely like this. And frankly there have really been zero Frankenstein movies that have told the Shelley version. If most fans would read the book they would be like wha what!! that's not Frank!

The same goes for Dracula, what the average person knows about Dracula is about 180 degrees out from what was actually written by Stoker.

It appears to be...

Calvin Candie's family reunion. McAvoy could pass for ol' Chip Candie, famed podiatrist and all around good guy.

This is my dream casting for these roles. I have been saying for years that James McAvoy is the perfect Victor Frankenstein and Radcliffe would also be my first choice for Igor.

This will be the last time I say this, I swear...

...but there is no character named Igor in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein!

Say its based on the mythos, but don't try to tell us this will resemble the actual book in any way.

Please tell me Igor falls in love with Victor...

Everyone knows he has a huge Igor Hump Boner for Victor, we should finally get to see from his viewpoint (not even acted upon, but just subtle thoughts of admiration like in that Alan Turing movie.)
