While Guillermo Del Toro already has his next stop-motion animated project lined up, we also know that he’s developing a live-action Frankenstein movie. The details on that remain a secret, but we have a pretty good idea who three of the key stars of his horror movie will be.
According to Deadline, Del Toro has met with Oscar Isaac, Mia Goth, and Andrew Garfield to star in his Frankenstein film. Hard to argue about any of that. Nothing has been confirmed, however, and that includes where the movie will be set up at. The assumption is that Del Toro and Netflix will continue their association that led to his Pinocchio winning the Oscar for Best Animated Feature last weekend.
Goth might be the hottest actress working today following an incredible run of films including X, Pearl, and Infinity Pool. Isaac recently starred in Marvel’s Moon Knight series, while Garfield recently signed on to a new film alongside Florence Pugh.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is one of the most recognizable stories in the world, but that means little in Del Toro’s hands. His Pinocchio was a brilliant departure from the familiar tale, and he may seek to do something different with the Frankenstein story we already know.
