Bill Nighy Eyed for I, FRANKENSTEIN Villain

English actor to play the baddie once again.

Variety reports that Bill Nighy is in negotiations for the villain role in the graphic novel adaptation ‘I, Frankenstein.’

The film stars Aaron Eckhart as Adam, Frankenstein’s monster “who is being hunted by demons that want to learn the secret of his creation in order to build an army of reanimated corpse demons.” Nighy would be playing a demon prince.

Australian actor Socratis Otto (‘Home and Away,’ ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ ‘The Pacific’) is also attached, playing Nighy’s compatriot who is “tasked with tracking down and capturing Adam.”

Stuart Beattie is on board to direct, working from his own script.
