After a big Oscar win, Guillermo del Toro is already in the process of making another movie. The director was nearly in tears as he bagged his award for Best Animated Picture for Pinocchio, but he has only shared the happiness with fans by announcing another movie. What is more exciting are the names of the potential cast members that could play the lead in the horror thriller.
This film is expected to bring Mary Shelley’s famous novel ‘Frankenstein’ onto the big screen again. As per Deadline, the director is in talks with Spider-Man’s Andrew Garfield, Scenes from a Marriage actor Oscar Isaac, and Pearl’s Mia Goth. While the director’s own recognition has garnered a fan base, the addition of these three actors has only increased the excitement. So far, Guillermo del Toro has not signed anyone or made announcements, but he has had a meeting with all three stars. Meanwhile, he also continues to write the movie’s script on the side.
Now, there have been several versions of the classic novel, brought to the big screen through different times. More than 20 Frankenstein movies have been made so far, with the first Frankenstein released in 1931 to the 1994 Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and more. Del Toro’s project will be a Netflix movie as part of his multi projects with the OTT platform.
