Jeremy is set to star in Mary Shelley’s Monster, focusing on the young woman who’d give the world the iconic novel, Frankenstein, as Mary’s husband. Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner, has also joined the project, playing the lead role, Mary Shelley.

The film, written by Deborah Baxtrom, “tracks the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own ‘monster’ of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost,” according to Deadline. Turner will act alongside Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) as Mary’s husband, Percy Shelley, and Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Mary’s stepsister, Claire Clarmont.
