Still denying us the Very Harry Christmas Special the wizarding world demands, Daniel Radcliffe is continuing his search for dark, interesting, non-wizard roles with an eye on playing "Hunchback" in 20th Century Fox's revisionist Frankenstein movie.
As their are literally eight Frankensteins currently in development, I'll be a little more specific: according to TheWrap, the project Radcliffe is interested in is the sci-fi-angled one with a script from Chronicle's Max Landis and to be directed by Lucky Number Slevin's Paul McGuigan, who took over the job from Shawn Levy. Beyond being called "Hunchback," the character Radcliffe is eyeing is "described as pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing." He'll probably make for a good Halloween costume in a few years time. In the meantime, if you need something for next month, "Harry Potter in Frankenstein" also isn't such a bad idea.
