Guillermo del Toro's "Frankenstein" has a new monster!

We don't know if you know that Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) is working on Netflix's adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein". Now if you are interested in who finally got the role of the titular monster, then we can reveal to you that it is Jacob Elordi (Saltburn, The Mortuary Collection), who took over the role from Andrew Garfield.

Del Toro has been developing the Frankenstein project for some time. For a long time, he desired to translate Shelley's iconic story into moving pictures. For now, it is still unknown whether this version will be set in the Victorian era, some other historical era, or if the action will take place in modern times. "Frankenstein" follows the brilliant scientist Victor Frankenstein, who brings his monster to life in an experiment that ultimately leads to the destruction of both the creator and his tragic creation. As a work, "Frankenstein" explores the question of what it means to be a monster, the nature of beauty, and the monstrous deeds that the human species can do.

Given that del Toro decided to create his vision of the story, much like his adaptation of "Pinocchio", we can only guess how far the project will differ from the source material. However, since he apparently respects the work of the author of the novel and the story is very close to his heart, it can be assumed that the basis of the story will remain recognizable.

“I'm doing "Frankenstein". We're working on it. We start shooting in February, and it's the movie I've wanted to do for 50 years since I saw the first "Frankenstein". I had a moment of discovery, which is a film that required development and a lot of tools that I couldn't have done 10 years ago. Now I'm brave enough or crazy enough and I'll deal with it.” del Toro stated.

The rest of the currently known cast consists of Oscar Isaac (Moon Knight), who will portray Dr. Frankenstein, Mia Goth (Pearl), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Felix Kammerer (All Quiet on the Western Front), Lars Mikkelsen (Ahsoka), David Bradley (Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio) and Christian Convery (Sweet Tooth).

Del Toro is the screenwriter, director, and producer of a film that, although it is made for Netflix, we can probably expect in cinemas, with some limited offer, like it was the case with Netflix's animated film "Pinocchio". The composer is Alexandre Desplat, who worked with del Toro on the film "The Shape of Water", the TV series "Trollhunters" and the animated film "Pinocchio".

The premiere date of the film is currently unknown, but it is assumed that it will not arrive before the end of 2025.
