Andrew Garfield and Mia Goth join Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Frankenstein’ – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: After his big Animated Feature Oscar win on Sunday for Pinocchio, Guillermo del Toro is getting closer to finding his next live-action movie. Sources tell Deadline 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 picture.

Insiders close to the photo warn that del Toro is still working on the script and no formal offers have been made to actors. But sources add that he has met all three and they are all on board to shine.

Netflix declined comment.

Del Toro has been developing the Frankenstein project for a while now and has always wanted to make a movie centered around the iconic Mary Shelley story. It is unknown whether his version would be a historical photo or set in modern times. It is also unknown who would play Doctor Frankenstein or his creation; it is believed that Goth would play Doctor Frankenstein’s love interest.

Even in its early days, del Toro seems to put together an ensemble as on fire as any other in this town. Isaac remains busy as he comes off his Emmy-nominated work in HBOs Scenes from a wedding and the limited Marvel series Moon Knight. He was also recently tapped to play Kurt Vonnegut in the limited series Helstad.

Garfield is coming in from Emmy and SAG nominations for his work Under the banner of heaven and will also star in the StudioCanal picture alongside Florence Pugh We live in time. As for Goth, she’s becoming the new go-to scream queen with not one, not two, but three critically acclaimed appearances in horror movies. X, its predecessor Pearl And infinity pool, which premiered at Sundance.

There will be more when this comes together.
