Bill Nighy talks I, Frankenstein
Director Stuart Beattie’s monster movie I, Frankenstein’s still a year away, but British actor Bill Nighy has been talking about the character he plays…
Actor Bill Nighy has revealed some tidbits of information regarding his character in next year's apocalyptic monster movie I, Frankenstein.
Nighy, no stranger to genre and fantasy films (Underworld, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Harry Potter), was interviewed on BBC Radio 2 and told Steve Wright that the story "Picks up where Frankenstein left off."
Nighy describes his character, unknown as of yet, as a "Nasty piece of work; one of the angels descended with Satan."
I, Frankenstein is based on the comic book of the same name from actor and writer Kevin Grevioux, also known for his role as Raze in the aforementioned Underworld movies. The comic book was released in 2009 and almost immediately optioned for the big screen treatment.
The production of I, Frankenstein hasn't been smooth, with original director, Patrick Tatopoulos (known for his design production on films such as Godzilla, Underworld, Dark City amongst many others), replaced by writer/director Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow, When The War Began, Australia, 30 Days Of Night).
On the cast front, I, Frankenstein boasts Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Miranda Otto (Lord Of The Rings) and Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker from television's Chuck). Filming continues on the film in Australia, and it’s due for a February 2013 release in the US.
