If you’ve ever wondered what Guillermo Del Toro’s version of Frankenstein would look like, we’ve got some good news for you! The acclaimed director is plotting the adaptation of the classic horror story with Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac, and Mia Goth in the lead roles.
Guillermo Del Toro is fresh off the success of his Oscar-winning animated film Pinocchio, and he’s set his eye on several new projects. Shortly after it was announced he was working on the animated adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant, it turned out he was planning to bring another great novel to the screen.
Toro’s Frankenstein is in the early stages of development and he’s still working on the script at Netflix. Garfield, Isaac, and Goth are yet to get formal offers, but it’s been reported that Del Toro met with all three and they all expressed interest to star in this project.
Frankenstein is one of Del Toro’s passion projects and he wanted to direct it since he was a child. He’s been plotting this film for years, but was never in the hurry to get it done, telling Digital Spy, “You have one shot in your lifetime at these things and I don’t want to do it the wrong way.”
