Danny Boyle is back in theatreland (where he began his career) with a production of Nick Dear’s Frankenstein for the National Theatre on London’s Southback. Bleeding Cool has posted a teaser trailer of sorts, which is embedded below.

The director is reunited with Trainspotting actor Jonny Lee Miller and the nation’s second favorite  Sherlock Homes, Benedict Cumberbatch is also onboard for this adaptation of Shelley’s classic. The added attraction here is that both actors will be swapping roles throughout the production. Wonder if this will encourage theatergoers to make a return visit to see both performances?

Frankenstein will be broadcast to cinemas as a part of National Theatre Live on 17th March 2011.
