As Guillermo del Toro continues work on the script for his Netflix feature film Frankenstein, a new report indicates that the director has begun meeting with talent for the film. Deadline reports that while no deals have been finalized just yet, del Toro has met with Andrew Garfield, Mia Goth and Oscar Isaac for roles in the project.
Del Toro has been very public about his long-standing desire to develop a film around Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. In 2008, the writer-director told Coming Soon that he’d “been dreaming of doing a ‘Frankenstein’ movie since I was a child.” Del Toro struck an overall deal with Netflix in 2020 and has been working toward getting Frankenstein off the ground since. Now, del Toro seems to be assembling a dream cast for his dream project which is expected to begin production in June.
