Yvonne Strahovski & Miranda Otto Join I, FRANKENSTEIN

Two new additions to the graphic novel adaptation.

‘Chuck’ star Yvonne Strahovski has landed the female lead opposite Aaron Eckhart in ‘I, Frankenstein.’ THR adds that Miranda Otto, best known for playing Eowyn in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, has also joined the cast.

The Stuart Beattie-directed film is based on Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel and follows Adam, Frankenstein’s monster as he is pursued by demons wanting to gain the secret of his reanimated corpse.

Strahovski will play “a scientist working on reanimating the dead, who is tricked into working for demons seeking to create an army of the undead.” Otto is playing the queen of the gargoyles who wants to help Frankenstein.

As reported earlier this week, Bill Nighy is in talks to play the villain. Socratis Otto (no relation to Miranda) is attached to play Nighy’s right hand man.
