Netflix announces cast for del Toro’s Frankenstein

January 8, 2024

Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro is to adapt Mary Shelley’s classic tale of Victor Frankenstein – a brilliant but egotistical scientist who brings a creature to life in a monstrous experiment that ultimately leads to the undoing of both the creator and his tragic creation – for Netflix.

Frankenstein continues Netflix’s partnership with del Toro, including the Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature Film, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, the anthology series Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, and the animated films Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans and Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia. The film also continues Netflix’s partnership with Oscar winner J. Miles Dale, who recently served as executive producer and co-showrunner on Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curiosities.

Netflix has announced that Jacob Elordi (Priscilla, Saltburn), Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) and Felix Kammerer (All Quiet on the Western Front) have joined Oscar Isaac and Mia Goth in the cast of Frankenstein. Lars Mikkelsen (The Witcher), David Bradley (Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio) and Christian Convery (Sweet Tooth) also join the ensemble.
