Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac, Mia Goth Circle del Toro’s Frankenstein – Variety

Just days after winning an Oscar for best animated feature for his dark take on “Pinocchio,” Guillermo del Toro is already looking to cast his next film.

Sources say Variety that Andrew Garfield, Oscar Isaac and Mia Goth are in early talks to star in Netflix’s live-action “Frankenstein” movie, which del Toro will write and direct.

Del Toro has been developing the project, based on English author Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel, for several years, but it is unclear how faithfully he intends to interpret the source material. “Frankenstein” is part of the filmmaker’s multi-year deal with Netflix, where del Toro has a number of projects in various stages of development. Talks about “Frankenstein” are in the very early stages, sources say Variety.

Del Toro’s win on Sunday marked his third Academy Award after two wins for 2017’s “The Shape of Water,” which won best director and best picture. Del Toro was also nominated in 2007 for screenplay and foreign language film for “Pan’s Labyrinth” and again in 2022 for best picture for “Nightmare Alley.”

Netflix declined to comment.

Garfield most recently starred in the Hulu miniseries “Under the Banner of Heaven,” had a role in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and directed Netflix’s “Tick, Tick… Boom!”, for which he received an Oscar nomination for best actor.

Isaac starred in the miniseries “Scenes From a Marriage” and Marvel’s “Moon Night,” as well as “The Card Counter” and “Dune.”

Goth is best known for leading Ti West’s “X” trilogy, which includes “X,” “Pearl” and the upcoming “MaXXXine.” She also recently starred in Brandon Cronenberg’s “Infinity Pool,” which premiered at Sundance.

Deadline was the first to report the news.
