James McAvoy to play Frankenstein?

Los Angeles: Actor James McAvoy is in negotiations to play Victor Von Frankenstein in 20th Century Fox`s remake of Mary Shelley`s classic Gothic novel.

The 34-year-old, known for playing Professor X in "X-Men: First Class", is close to signing a deal as the lead role in a classic Gothic novel `Frankenstein`.

McAvoy would join an already star-studded cast, starring alongside Daniel Radcliffe, who has been locked in to play Frankenstein`s assistant, Igor.

The story follows eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a monstrous creature - named Fitz - in an unconventional scientific experiment, but after he rejects the artificial man he`s just produced, the unnatural being escapes and seeks revenge.
