This assignment takes her into the underground world of counter-intelligence, risking her own life to save the lives of the British agents, as she tries to navigate a culture full of deceit and double-crossing where no one can truly be trusted.Read More
Victor Frankenstein is directed by Paul McGuigan, known best for his work on the hit PBS and BBC series Sherlock, and it is written by the often outspoken Max Landis, who has become more known as a celebrity than a screenwriter after making waves with the superhero movie Chronicle.
