Game Of Thrones’ Sophie Turner to star in Mary Shelley biopic

She’ll headline Mary Shelley’s Monster

A new biopic of Frankenstein author Mary Shelley is on the way, with Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner set to take the title role.

Deadline reports that the 18-year-old actress will star in Mary Shelley's Monster opposite Jeremy Irvine, who will play her on-screen lover (and eventual husband), the poet Percy Shelley.

According to producer Rose Ganguzza, the film will tell, “the story of the most extraordinary 19th century teenage heroine told in a visceral, sexy, contemporary way.”

“Our film is not a period drama,” she continues. “It is a story of youth that transcends time, a gothic romance, a love triangle that involves a dark passenger and we are tremendously excited to have such an exciting cast onboard this wonderful project.”

Quite the picture she paints, no? Taissa Farmiga is also set to star, while Coky Giedroyc will be filling the director’s chair. No release date has been confirmed for the film as yet.

Is Turner a good pick for the role? Tell us, below!

      Although Sophie is very Schwing! I've never really been impressed with her on GOT, she's good at weeping though lol. Maisie Williams has always been the actress that stands out on the show for me.

      Arya gets a lot more to do to be fair though, Sansa has been a bit dull for a long while. Sophie Turner is model stunning and the right age to play MJ.
