Former Bond villain Javier Bardem is being eyed by Universal Pictures to take up the role of Frankenstein in their rebooted classic monster movie franchise.
The studio has already populated this universe with some serious A-list talent including Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe and Johnny Depp among others. It’s currently unknown which monster feature Bardem would first appear in.
Universal is also currently developing a Bride of Frankenstein film, however sources indicate that Bardem’s Frankenstein would likely appear in another monster movie first with the possibility of a spinoff down the road.
Bardem had first been approached about playing the Dr. Jekyll role opposite Cruise in The Mummy, but that role eventually went to Man Of Steel actor Russell Crowe.
The actor will be seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales next summer.
