Will Javier Bardem Still Play Frankenstein’s Monster? Here’s What The Dune Actor Says

Back in the days when Universal Pictures was putting together its Dark Universe franchise, Javier Bardem was on deck to play Frankenstein’s monster. However, that shared universe never came to fruition due to its first entry, The Mummy, critically and commercially underperforming in summer 2017. Since then, Universal has embarked down a new creative path with its lineup of Monsters, but is it possible that the man who appeared as Stilgar in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune could still star in a new cinematic Frankenstein story?

While recently appearing on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show, Javier Bardem was asked if he’s still attached to play Frankenstein’s monster for Universal. After mentioning that he has the right head size for the role, the actor responded:

I haven’t heard anything about it, so I don’t know what’s the state of that. Me personally, I would love to play Frankenstein. Actually, I would like to play both — Dr. Frankenstein and Frankenstein the monster. Because it’s the dichotomy and the contradiction of one, the same being. But I don’t know if that’s going to be the case or not. As far as I know, it’s not happening.
