Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto join I, Frankenstein

Yvonne Strahovski

Set to begin shooting in Melbourne early next year, comic book adaptation I, Frankenstein has added two more cast members to its growing roster.

Deadline reports that Chuck star Yvonne Strahovski will take the female lead in the film, starring opposite Aaron Eckhart as Adam, or Frankenstein’s monster. She will play his love interest, along with being a beautiful scientist. Sounds like pretty good work if you can get it.

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter has let slip that Miranda Otto, best know international as Eowyn in the Lord of the Rings films, will play the Queen of the Gargoyles, and an aid to Adam.
