Fresh from his Best Animated Feature Oscar win for Netflix's Pinocchio, Guillermo del Toro's next project from the streamer is finally lumbering forward.
The fan-favorite Blade 2 director is set to helm a new live-action adaptation of horror classic, Frankenstein.
The movie is only in the very early stages of development, but already has an all-star cast lined up. According to Deadline, Oscar Isaac, Andrew Garfield, and Mia Goth are in early talks to play the lead roles.
It's assumed that Isaac and Garfield would play the eponymous doctor and the Monster (though we have no idea which actor would portray which character), while Goth is believed to be in negotiations to play Victor Frankenstein's love-interest, Elizabeth.
Del Toro will write and direct the film.
First published in 1818, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus has been adapted numerous times for the stage and screen, but there have been very few fully faithful takes on the story (the creature's appearance in the novel, for example, has never been accurately depicted).
With Del Toro behind the camera, it's probably safe to assume that this will stick as closely as possible to the book.
No word on when production is expected to get underway, but we'll be sure to update as more information becomes available.
