Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe to play Hunchback?

Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in a new adaptation of 'Frankenstein'.

The 'Harry Potter' actor is reportedly in talks to play Hunchback, who assists Henry Frankenstein in the creation of his monster, in a new film version of the best-selling book.

The movie places the monster character - named Fitz in the book - in the lead role and he will wear old clown's clothing, and has been described as ''pathologically dirty''.

The film-makers are currently finalising the script, which is being penned by 'Chronicle' writer Max Landis, who recently discussed the challenges of re-interpreting the book.

He said: ''I began to pick apart our knowledge of Frankenstein and discovered that the public's idea of this myth comes from a million different places.

''I became committed to re-contextualising it all so it all worked in one story. By the end of the day, it's a period piece and yes, it's from [Hunchback's] perspective, but man it's cool. It's the best thing I've written.''
