Fox is searching for its new Dr. Victor “Frankenstein” for a reboot of the classic monster movie, and has narrowed their search down to rising stars Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell for the titular role, according to Deadline. Daniel Radcliffe signed on this spring for the role of Igor. It’s unclear at this point how much the studio and director Paul McGuigan will be pulling from the Mary Shelley classic novel from which this iconic tale originates.
