I knew that Danny Boyle was working on a stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic tale, Frankenstein… but what I didn’t know was that Naomie Harris was co-starring in it. What I also wasn’t aware of is that the play, written by Nick Dear and directed by Danny Boyle, will be broadcast live in HD from the National Theatre to cinemas around the world, starting March 17th.
A coincidence, considering my very recent post about filmed stage plays with Hollywood actors in starring roles.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller will alternate the roles of Victor Frankenstein and The Creature. Harris will play Elizabeth Lavenza, Dr. Frankenstein’s doomed fiancée.
Worth noting, also co-starring is George Harris (pictured below and no relation to Naomie) whom most will likely recognize from the Harry Potter movies, plays Victor Frankenstein’s father.
How’s all that for inspired casting?
I was able to dig up a few images of Naomie in action, as well as a poster, and a teaser trailer – all are embedded below.
Stay tuned for updates on what theaters exactly this will be broadcast… there might be one next to you.
