DANIEL RADCLIFFE IN 'FRANKENSTEIN'
We shall have a Frankenstein day today at HOLLYWOOD SPY, people, in honour of the latest info coming from "Deadline": British star James McAvoy has taken the lead role in 20th Century Fox movie FRANKEN- STEIN. According to rumours McAvoy managed to beat out Jack Huston from BOARDWALK EMPIRE and Toby Kebbell from WRATH OF THE TITANS for the role of infamous Dr. Victor Von Frankenstein. I have already informed you before that the big screen adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel will have Daniel Radcliffe playing Victor's faithful servant and assistant Igor. The film will deal with friendship and redemption in a revisionist take on the story which will also have a sf element in it. Paul McGuigan (LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN) is directing.

DEZZY'S LITERATURE CLASS

Did you know that FRANKENSTEIN is actually a creation of a teen girl? Mary Shelley, who wrote the novel in 1818 in London, was only 19 when she started writing it and 21 when it was published for the first time anonymously.  She came up with the book when she, her husband famous poet Percy Shelley and their friend Lord Byron, decided to compete who will make a better horror story. The story then appeared to her in a dream. It is also considered one of the first sf novels ever! Both Shelley's and Byron's publishers have originally refused to publish the book!

 'I, FRANKENSTEIN' EPIC SF
 AARON ECKHART & BILL NIGHY
Another film on the famous monster arriving to the theatres much sooner is I, FRANKENSTEIN which will start its cinematic life next January following an unlikely hero who comes to the aid humankind as a race of supernatural creatures look to take over Earth. The story of this one centres on Adam Frankenstein (Aaron Eckhart), the creation of Dr. Frankenstein who is still alive centuries after his "birth." Adam is hunted down by a clan of demons who want to learn Adam's secret in order to reanimate deceased demons to start a new army. The monster will be encountering other famous movie monsters including the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Invisible Man, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde plus many more, in a re-imagined contemporary setting. Bill Nighy plays a demon prince, with Socratis Otto playing the prince's right hand man, who goes after Adam. Television star Yvonne Strahovski is Terra, the female lead a scientist who is working on reanimating the dead, with LORD OF THE RINGS star Miranda Otto playing the queen of the gargoyles who wants to help Frankenstein. SPARTACUS star Jai Courtney will be Gideon, leader of the Gargoyle army.
FRANKIE TIDBITS

The film, which was shot over in Australia, and is produced by the UNDERWORLD producers is actually an adaptation of a graphic novel.  Both Aaron Eckhart and Miranda Otto practised martial arts for three months for this movie. Bill Nighy loves playing evil demons, since in UNDERWORLD he already played a Vampire king!
