Jacob Elordi Has Joined The Cast Of Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein

Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein has lost Andrew Garfield but gained Jacob Elordi as the monster. Felix Kammerer, Lars Mikkelsen, David Bradley and Christian Convery have also joined the cast

Article Summary

  • Jacob Elordi replaces Andrew Garfield in Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein.
  • Strike delays reshuffle the cast, with Elordi as the monster to Oscar Isaac's Victor.
  • Joining the ensemble are Felix Kammerer, Lars Mikkelsen, David Bradley, and others.
  • Del Toro's take on Frankenstein is shrouded in mystery, but promises a unique spin.

Guillermo Del Toro's Frankenstein adaptation has become the latest project to shift its cast around due to strike delays. The strikes last year, where studios had a hard time deciding whether or not writers and actors should have livable wages, were long enough that they disrupted a lot of production schedules. Recently, we learned about Steven Yeun and how he had to step away from Thunderbolts due to scheduling conflicts brought on by the strikes. According to Deadline, Frankenstein has lost Andrew Garfield, which is a shame, but they have gained Jacob Elordi, who might be the It Boy right now with the year that he is having. Elordi isn't playing another pretty face since he is playing the monster opposite Oscar Isaac's Victor Frankenstein and our favorite horror girl, Mia Goth. Elordi will be joined by Felix Kammerer (All Quiet On The Western Front), Lars Mikkelsen (The Witcher), David Bradley, and Christian Convery (Sweet Tooth), with Christoph Waltz getting confirmed after del Toro spoke of him back in October.

Frankenstein has been a passion project for Del Toro for years, and last year, it finally got off the ground at Netflix. Since then, the cast, including Goth and Isaac, has been filling out. The strike has slowed production down on everything, and we haven't heard anything about this film in a while; there were some rumblings before the strike started, but things have been quiet ever since. The film currently doesn't have a release date. Del Toro is writing, directing, and producing alongside J. Miles Dale, with whom he worked as a producer on Cabinet of Curiosities. Details about del Toro's adaptation are being kept under wraps to the point that we don't know if it will be a period film or not. Still, considering the absolutely buckwild direction he managed to take Pinnochio, you can probably rest easy that whatever you think this film will be, you're probably dead wrong.
