Jessica Brown Findlay is in talks to star in the 20th Century Fox film adaptation of “Frankenstein.” The “Downton Abbey” actress would play the female lead opposite Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy.

The latest adaptation of the horror classic will tell the story from Igor’s point of view, the famous assistant with a hunchback to Dr. Frankenstein. McAvoy will be playing the doctor while Radcliffe has signed-on to play Igor. If Findlay joins the cast, she will be playing a trapeze artist who is saved by Igor after getting into an accident. The pair will become very close after the incident.

“It’s about two young, brilliant guys pushing each other. Eventually one loses his morality and the other has to bring him back,”Radcliffe told The Hollywood Reporter.

“Frankenstein” has an expected release date of October 17, 2014.
