James McAvoy May Play Dr. Frankenstein to Daniel Radcliffe’s Igor

James McAvoy poses in the press room during the 2012 Olivier Awards at The Royal Opera House on April 15, 2012 in London, England.

Although Daniel Radcliffe as Igor was basically enough to sell a new Frankenstein movie already, James McAvoy (Trance, X-Men: First Class) is now thinking about coming aboard as Baron Victor Von Frankenstein. Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push) is directing from a script by Chronicle writer Max Landis. Aaron Eckhart won't be playing the monster, because he's doing that in another movie already.
