‘Downton Abbey’ star Jessica Brown Findley joins Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy for ‘Frankenstein’

The 20th Century Fox version of the classic monster Frankenstein gained another star in recent news as Jessica Brown Findlay joined the project.

Variety reports that the Downton Abbey star will be joining Radcliffe, who stars as Igor to McAvoy’s Victor Von Frankenstein.

Brown Findlay plays Lady Sybil Crawley on Abbey and acclaimed role as Emelia Conan-Doyle in the British drama Albatross, which earned the actress Most Promising Newcomer recognition. She considered for the lead role in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, a role which ultimately went to Mia Wasikowska.

Radcliffe has said is “far and away the best script [he’s] read coming out of a big studio in the time that [he’s] been off Harry Potter.”

The story is based around the character of Frankenstein’s hunchback lab assistant Igor, who does not appear in Shelley’s original novel. Since the film is at Fox, similarities to the classic Frankenstein monster from Universal seem very unlikely.

 Max Landis (Chronicle) wrote the script and Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push) is directing.

McGuigan’s untitled Frankenstein movie is due out October 17, 2014.

Fans should expect a Boris Karloff style monster for the new 'Frankenstein' film at Fox which just added a 'Downton Abbey' star
