Guillermo del Toro’s Frankenstein Eyes Oscar Isaac, Mia Goth, and Andrew Garfield

After Guillermo del Toro’s take on Pinocchio managed to nab an Oscar win, he’s set to team up with Netflix again for a new take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Just in, Deadline reports that the film is already in talks with three major stars who will appear in the movie—namely Oscar Isaac, Mia Goth, and Andrew Garfield. We don’t have any details about who they could be playing, but I’m guessing Isaac and Garfield could be up for the part of Frankenstein and Igor; Goth is said to be eyed for Frankenstein’s love interest.

It’s been said that del Toro has been developing this Frankenstein project for a while, and with his penchant for monsters, it’s no mystery that he would have his eyes set on one of cinema’s most iconic ones.

With del Toro changing the Pinocchio story so that he doesn’t ever change into a ‘real boy,’ I wonder how he could alter the Frankenstein story to fit his own original take. Will it be set around WWI? With so many takes on Frankenstein over the decades, del Toro must have something unique if he really wants to push forward with this version.

If I were to make a guess, I think he would actually change the gender of the monster so that it would be Mia Goth who would be playing the part. She’s no stranger to body horror, and maybe there could be an interesting angle to Frankenstein creating a woman instead.

Then again, I am just spit-balling here.

No release date has been set for del Toro’s Frankenstein, but you can check out Pinocchio now streaming on Netflix.
