James McAvoy will temporarily take leave from Xavier’s house of mutants to play Victor Von Frankenstein in director Paul McGuigan’s upcoming movie based on the classic monster and his master.
Daniel Radcliffe will play Igor in the Fox picture.
According to Deadline, McAvoy won the gig over Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell, who also tested for the Frankenstein role.
The project reunites McAvoy with Fox, whom he did “X-Men : Days of Future Past” with.
