Daniel Radcliffe In 'Frankenstein': Erstwhile Harry Potter Set For Igor

Does Daniel Radcliffe have the most interesting acting career of the moment? Fresh off an appearance at the Oscars, where his song-and-dance skills were put to good use during Seth MacFarlane's monologue, Radcliffe has signed to play Igor in "Frankenstein," a movie Variety calls "a goth feature."

Radcliffe's initial involvement in "Frankenstein" dates back to September of 2012 when his name was first attached. Max Landis ("Chronicle") wrote the script with Paul McGuigan acting as director. According to TheWrap, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" will get an update to become more of a science-fiction affair.

Like Emma Watson, who is now attached to an updated version of "Cinderella," Radcliffe has kept busy since graduating Hogwarts. He starred in the Sundance Film Festival hit "Kill Your Darlings" as Beat poet Allen Ginsberg, and will later appear in the horror thriller "Horns." Radcliffe is also set to star in the romantic comedy "The F Word."
