Hi guys, first of all, I’m sorry. I was supposed to made this post since last week but job kept me busy. Anyway, as you must know (or not) Frankenstein is already finish. Yes, they’ve shot everything under the radar and the wrap party was on september 25. Big thanks to @Larry411 who confirmed our suspects. And there’s a bts pic of Xavier with Danny Huston who plays Victor Frankenstein with a member of the crew’s production. Please do not forget credits if you re-post it :)
Movies > Frankenstein (2015) > Behind The Scenes
Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga, Fury) will star as Frankenstein’s monster in a new contemporized of Mary Shelley’s iconic monster, from Candyman helmerBernard Rose. Frankenstein is set in present day Los Angeles and told from the perspective of Adam/The Monster (Samuel), who is created by a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists only to be met with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. Danny Huston and Carrie-Anne Moss will play Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein in a cast that also includes Rose’s Candyman star Tony Todd. Rose adapted the script himself, updating Shelley’s classic tome as he did with Tolstoy in ivan’s xtc. Frankenstein is produced by Gabriela Bacher, Heidi Jo Markel, Jennifer Holliday Morrison, Christian Angermayer, and Klemens Hallmann.Frankenstein leads a slate of upcoming cutting-edge horror films at Bad Badger, the banner recently formed by Rose and Morrison.
Also, Taschi Lynell responsible for the movie makeup posted this picture and the caption:
Wrap party last night with our lead #xaviersamuel. Weeks of pure fun working him. Now to get ready for 6 weeks of filming in Sacramento :)!!
And the director Bernard Rose said about Xavier:
“This version is an existential rollercoaster that is both emotional and terrifying,” said Rose. “Xavier is unquestionably one of the most talented actors of his generation and he threw himself into this challenging part with tremendous commitment.”
I’ve added three new additional outtakes and a behind the scenes picture from the photoshoot Xavier did with James Hartley for SA Weekend. Head on over to the gallery and check the gorgeous outtakes:

XAVIER Samuel found working with Brad Pitt a down and dirty business.
The up and coming Australian actor appears alongside the Hollyood star in the World War II flick, Fury, due out in November.
And the movie shoot just outside of London required lots of rolling around in the very realistic trenches.
“There was so much mud you could barely move,” Samuel said, adding that his character, Lt Parker, was “fresh out of army training like a green recruit who is thrust into a position of power and no one is listening to him”.
But Samuel did his best to hold his own in the position of authority.
“I just, you know, try and bark a few orders and hope that people will listen,” he said.
Working with Pitt was a career highlight for the 30-year-old Aussie.
“Brad is a great actor. He is just a down-to-earth guy. He was someone I grew up watching in films and someone I really admired, so to have a chance to work with the guy is not something you would pass up,” he said.
As for autographs and happy snaps, Samuel said he refrained from any “fan moments”.
“I managed to restrain myself,” he laughed. “It is very uncool. You’ve got to keep your cool, you can’t do pics and autographs.”
Fury, directed by David Ayer, is set in 1945 and tells the story of a group of soldiers operating a Sherman tank in Europe.
Next up, Samuel will be heading home to play poet Banjo Patterson in a project due to start filming early next year.
“I’m looking forward to getting back and seeing the family and hanging out,” Samuel said.
