Paul McGuigan is directing the movie, which retells the Mary Shelley horror classic from the perspective of Igor, the hunchbacked assistant to Victor Frankenstein.
Radcliffe is playing Igor, while McAvoy is playing the doctor who has plans to build a human body.
Findlay will play a trapeze artist who is saved by Igor after an accident, with the two becoming very close in the aftermath.
John Davis is producing the movie, scripted by Max Landis (Chronicle), and hopes to shoot later this fall in London and Scotland.
“It’s about two young, brilliant guys pushing each other. Eventually one loses his morality and the other has to bring him back,” Radcliffe told THR during a reception for his movie Horns in Toronto.
On Abbey, Findlay played Lady Sybil, the social boundary-pushing child of the Crawley clan. She has appeared in several movies and received acclaim for starring, with Felicity Jones, in the 2011 U.K. drama Albatross. Her American studio debut will be the recently wrapped Warner Bros. drama Winter’s Tale, whose cast includes Will Smith, Colin Farrell and Matt Bomer, among others.
Findlay is repped by WME, Management 360 and Troika in the U.K.
