THE PITCH

Igor spills the beans on his boss. “Not another Franken­stein film!” we hear you groan. But wait! Come back! With a script by Chron­i­cle’s Max Lan­dis, a cracking cast ( how much fun do you reckon McAvoy and Rad­cliffe had mak­ing this to­gether, eh?) and a new view­point – namely, Rad­cliffe’s trusty ser­vant, Igor – this new adap­ta­tion of Mary Shel­ley’s 1818 novel looks as though it could be su­perb. Di­rected by Sher­lock helmer McGuigan – cast mem­bers in­clude Baker Street reg­u­lars Louise Brealey and Mark Gatiss, fun­nily enough – Franken­stein could have a punky, thor­oughly Bri­tish feel that re­ju­ve­nates a tired old for­mula. And let’s face it, it has to be bet­ter than this year’s pu­trid I, Franken­stein.
