Daniel Radcliffe may not be at Hogwarts anymore, but he’s still palling around with creepy creatures.

The actor, who reminded folks he’s also a Broadway song-and-dance man at the Oscars this week, is in final talks to star as Igor, the hunchbacked lab assistant,  in the upcoming Frankenstein from 20th Century Fox, EW has confirmed. (Deadline originally reported the news.)

The long-in-the-works script, based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel, is being written by Max Landis (Chronicle). This version of the famous story will apparently be from Igor’s point of view. Frankenstein’s tale was last seen on the big screen in Tim Burton’s 2012 homage, Frankenweenie.
