Yvonne Strahovski goes from Chuck to the love interest in I, Frankenstein
Posted by: Zack Bruce
There is a ton of casting for leads in film roles this evening. This is my third write-up of an actor/actress getting a major part in a film. It’s interesting to see the different career paths between them. Angelina Jolie has been around for awhile, Asa Butterfield is just getting started, and Yvonne Strahovski has been leaving her mark on the small screen. Well until today.
Strahovski has been chosen for the female lead in I, FRANKENSTEIN. The actress will play the love interest to co-star, Aaron Eckhart. There’s more to her character than just plain beauty though. Eckhart’s character is particularly smitten with the fact she is a gifted scientist.
The film is based on Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel. Stuart Beattie (COLLATERAL) is adapting the material as well as helming on the project. Last week there was word that Bill Nighy was extended the offer to play the villain. No word back on that yet.
