I’m starting to believe in what Universal is doing with this Monster Shared Universe of there’s and their talent signed on has only furthered the excitement. The latest rumor is that Javier Bardem could join the monster movies in the form of a Frankenstein film.
It’s not specified in any reports as to whether or not Bardem will play Frankenstein’s monster or Dr. Frankenstein himself, but we want him in the movie one way or another. Bardem is best known for his villainous roles in Skyfall and his Oscar-winning performance in No Country For Old Men so if he has to play a deranged monster, human or otherwise, he is definitely set.
Bardem would join a list of actors that have Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man, Tom Cruise in The Mummy reboot with Sofia Boutella as the Mummy, Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyl, and possibly Angelina Jolie for the Bride of Frankenstein if she is confirmed.
