What you need to know:
It seems that Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Frankenstein’ is beginning to take shape, especially with the cast. This we know about the movie.
Frankenstein by Guillermo del Toro It starts to make more and more noise and the bet looks quite interesting. Because? Well, beyond what it means to bring one of the most classic monsters of all time back to the movies, The Mexican filmmaker is bringing together a striking castamong other things.
Over there, there has already been an important change in terms of the cast, and little by little, they will surely be released more details of what the director mexa is looking to outline in this project. Obviously, here we tell you what is known so far about the feature film being made for Netflix.
This is the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Frankenstein’
Since this installment was officially announced around 2023, it was announced that Andrew Garfield would be part of the cast. And well, time passed and things have moved a little in this sense.
As The Hollywood Reporter indicates, Jacob Elordi (which comes from an important stage with the premieres of Saltburn and Priscilla) will take the role of Garfield in Frankenstein by Guillermo Del Toro. With this, the also actor of Euphoria would take on the role of the protagonist monster (according to Showbiz411). Andrew would have left due to issues on his agenda.
Along with Elordi, the cast is completed by Oscar Isaac, Mia Goth, Felix Kammerer and Christopher Waltz… Luxury cast, yes or no?
The plot that the film would follow
For several years now, The Mexican filmmaker had expressed his desire to make his version of Frankenstein. But as we know, she’s been in a ton of different projects for at least the last decade.
The idea of Frankenstein of Guillermo del Toro regained strength in at least the last couple of years, this after The director will reveal plans for his next project to a Variety podcast. That time he only said that he was writing and designing a monster movie, but that he couldn’t reveal the title or anything like that because it could change the focus.
Quite a mystery, huh. But well, as time progresses, the details, although scarce, already give us an idea of what could show us this adaptation based on the iconic Mary Shelley character.
As far as is known, we will not see an origin story as such. What we would see would be Dr. Pretorious (supposedly played by Oscar Isaac) as he searches for the monster (Jacob Elordi) who was believed to have died in a fire 40 years ago.
In the absence of confirmation, it is rumored that Mia Goth would play a love interest of the monster (perhaps Frankenstein’s bride)… but we will see what happens as more details come to light. What do you think of the whole thing with Frankenstein by Guillermo Del Toro?
And the release date?
For now, there is no release date for Frankenstein by Guillermo del Toro, which as we said will be a project for Netflix. And since we’re on those, here we leave you the interview we had with the Mexican filmmaker for the premiere of Pinocchio.
Over here. The director tells us about how he developed his version of the classic children’s story. Let him know that the talk was good.
