Insiders close to the film 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 has met with all three, and each is on board to star.
No comment from Netflix.
del Toro has been developing the Frankenstein project for some time and long has wanted to make a movie centered on the iconic Mary Shelley story. It is unknown whether his version would be a period pic or set in modern times. Also unknown is who would be playing Doctor Frankenstein or his creation; it is believed Goth would be playing the doctor’s love interest.
Even in its early days, del Toro seems to be pulling together an ensemble as on fire as any in town.
Isaac continues to be busy as he is coming off his Emmy-nominated work in HBO’s Scenes from a Marriage and the Marvel limited series Moon Knight. He was also recently tapped to play Kurt Vonnegut in the limited series Helltown.
