According to The Wrap, Daniel Radcliffe has expressed interest in playing a role in director Paul McGuigan’s upcoming Frankenstein adaptation for Fox. Radcliffe is apparently eyeing the Hunchback role in the film, which is said to be a revised take on the classic story.

This version of Frankenstein will have more of a sci-fi slant than other versions with a script by Chronicle writer Max Landis. The site describes the Hunchback as “pathologically dirty and dressed in old clowns clothing.”
