GAME OF THRONES' Sophie Turner to Lead MARY SHELLEY'S MONSTER; Jeremy Irving, Taissa Farmiga Also Join
MARY SHELLEY'S MONSTER is one step closer to rising.
According to Deadline, GAME OF THRONES' Sophie Turner has signed on to play the FRANKENSTEIN author herself, opposite Jeremy Irving has Percy Shelley, and AMERICAN HORROR STORY's Taissa Farmiga as Mary's stepsister Claire Clairmont. Coky Giedroyc is set to direct.
The film follows "the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own "monster" of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost."
"Our film is not a period drama," said producer Rose Ganguzza. "It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project."
