Daniel is part of the most recent retelling of Shelley's famous tale of an arrogant doctor who through an unorthodox experiment brings to life a monster made up of dead human parts. Script written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by Paul McGuigan (Sherlock).
Frankenstein is a story which is said to have come to Mary Shelley through a dream, while she and her husband the poet Percy Shelley, were guests in the home of Lord Byron.
The Romantic poet famously challenged the group to write the best horror story.
But contrary to popular belief, Igor never appeared in her horror tale, but came into being through an amalgam of characters created through a number of the remakes since the 1931 movie.
It is only in Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's Monster Mash, where the hunchback is referred to by name.
Joining Daniel in the cast of Frankenstein are Sherlock's Adam Scott and Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay as Lorelei, a beautiful circus performer who gets close to Igor.
In director Paul McGuigan's version the story will be told more from the hunchbacked assistant's point of view, and production should continue into March next year.
In addition, they highly acclaimed "Kill Your Darlings" is set for DVD release on March 18th (USA) and April 21st (UK).
