Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein, James Gunn's Superman
Guillermo del Toro, great filmmaker and fan of all things monsters, has been talking about making his own version of Frankenstein for a few years. Finally, it looks like it’s happening. The director has plenty of clout now — not only did he win Best Picture and Best Director for The Shape of Water, but he just won Best Animated Feature for his stop-motion take on Pinocchio. And that clout is translating to realizing some dream projects — including Frankenstein.
