Kit Harington is Mary’s Monster.
The Game of Thrones alum has joined the cast of Fulwell 73 and Rose Pictures’ Mary’s Monster, a biopic about Mary Shelley. He will join Clara Rugaard (Love Gets a Room), who will play Mary Shelley, while Harington will portray the monster. Also joining the cast are Ferdia Walsh-Peelo (CODA) and Sebastian De Souza (Normal People) who will play Shelley’s husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and the couple’s friend Lord Byron, respectively.
“’Mary’s Monster’ is a brilliantly original and fascinating script and I’m relishing the idea of depicting the unique part of The Monster,” Harington said in a statement to the press. “An embodiment of Mary Shelley’s psyche. I’m excited by Farren’svision and passion for the project.”
The film will be directed by Farren Blackburn who directed episodes of Netflix’s Daredevil and The Defenders. He’s directing from a screenplay by Deborah Baxtrom (Living WithFrankenstein) and Stephen Hallett. Mary’s Monster will go into production in the U.K. later this summer.
La La Land producer, Marius de Vries, has boarded the project as the executive music producer and an executive producer. While Fulwell 73’s Leo Pearlman and Heather Greenwoodwill produce alongside Rose Picture’s Rose Ganguzza, Max Born, Jake Alden-Falconer and Damon Lane.
As of this writing a release date has not yet been announced.
