Javier Bardem In Talks to Play Frankenstein in Monster Universe

Javier Bardem is in talks to play the role of Frankenstein, though it is not known if the character will get his own film or just be featured in Universal Pictures’ monster universe.

The 47-year-old actor, who won an Oscar for his work in No Country for Old Men, will either play Dr. Frankenstein or Frankenstein’s monster, though it’s not clear which, according to THR.

The monster universe is kicking off with Tom Cruise‘s The Mummy and Javier was courted to play the roles of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, though he passed and Russell Crowe grabbed the part.
