Guillermo del Toro May Have Found His ‘Frankenstein’ Cast

Following his big Animated Feature Oscar win on Sunday for Pinocchio, Guillermo del Toro is getting closer to finding his next live-action film. Deadline is reporting that Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac and Mia Goth are in early talks to star in del Toro’s Frankenstein at Netflix. Del Toro will write and direct the film.


Insiders close to the movie caution that del Toro is still working on the script and no formal offers have given to any actors. But sources add that he has met with all three and each is on board to star.



Netflix declined comment.


Del Toro has been developing the Frankenstein project for some time and has always wanted to make a movie centered on the iconic Mary Shelley story. It is unknown whether his version would be a period piece or set in modern times. It is also unknown who would be playing Doctor Frankenstein or his creation; it is believed Goth would be playing Doctor Frankenstein’s love interest.
