Nighy will be the villain, a demon prince who squares off against the reanimated abomination named Adam played by Aaron Eckhart. The prince hopes to unlock the secret of Adam’s creation so that he can create his own army of undead corpses and take over the world.
Joining Nighy’s army as his right-hand man will be Australian actor Socratis Otto (who has appeared in The Matrix Reloaded and X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Nighy will also feature in the upcoming Clash of the Titans 2 and the Total Recall remake. I, Frankenstein is scheduled for release in the US on February 22nd 2013.
