Danny Boyle‘s production of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at London’s National Theatre is coming to select U.S. cinemas June 6-7. The two-night showing is presented by NCM’s Fathom Events, in collaboration with National Theatre Live and BY Events. Boyle’s Frankenstein was written by Nick Dear and starred Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch — the actors alternated playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Those performances earned the pair a joint Best Actor prize at London’s Evening Standard Theatre Awards in 2011. Boyle’s production of Dear’s reinterpretation of the gothic tale was filmed twice, so audiences can see both men in both parts. Originally performed and recorded live in March of last year, Frankenstein will be broadcast to more than 200 U.S. movie theaters. As Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva has noted, Miller has been cast as Sherlock Holmes in CBS’ pilot Elementary while Cumberbatch can be currently seen playing a modern-day Sherlock in PBS’ Sherlock, which just kicked off its second season in the U.S.
