As we've previously reported, a new 'Frankenstein' movie adapted from Mary Shelley's classic novel is in the works from 20th Century Fox with Max Landis penning and Paul McGuigan directing. Hopefully one of the next steps will be gathering up some big names to fill in the lead roles, but we're sure that won't be a problem, especially considering that 'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe has reportedly expressed interest in portraying a lead part... but which one?
Daniel Radcliffe’s horror vehicle ‘The Woman in Black’ didn’t lend itself to a natural sequel for spoiler-ish reasons that we can't get into here. But when the January thriller banked $127 million in worldwide grosses, a continuation of the chilling story seemed like a good idea to CBS Films and Hammer Productions.
‘The Woman In Black’ was a modest hit for CBS Films and Hammer Studios, earning $112.6 million from Daniel Radcliffe fans curious to see how the actor would fare in the post-‘Harry Potter’ age. They’re not ‘Hunger Games’ numbers, but they’re strong enough to justify a sequel, which apparently is going into production soon.
