Javier Bardem Eyed for “Frankenstein”

Universal’s shared Monster Universe is trying to add yet another A-lister to their lineup, as it’s being reported that No Country For Old Men and Skyfall’s Javier Bardem is being considered to star in the reboot of Frankenstein. As it stands, Universal’s The Mummy will star Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe (who himself will star as the titular Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in a spin-off), Johnny Depp will star as The Invisible Man, and Dwayne Johnson is rumored to be starring as The Wolfman.  It’s unclear if Bardem will be portraying the Dr. Frankenstein or the monster, but either way, we will likely see another one of Hollywood’s elite play opposite him. Pending on who gets cast in Dracula and The Creature from the Black Lagoon, the cross over film is looking to be one of the most expensive films ever made, based on actor salaries alone.
