A project that has been rolling around in the unmatched and incredible imagination of Guillermo del Toro since 2008, “Frankenstein” still has a way to go and hasn’t been stamped with a release date just yet. Set to be shooting in 2024, del Toro had Edinburgh pegged as one of the prime locations to tell his take on the making of the monster. The director revealed this via X, formerly known as Twitter, even popping into Frankenstein, a local spot in Scotland’s capital, while he was there.
Joining the dots with the hope that an agreement is reached regarding the SAG-AFTRA strike, there’s a likely chance that “Frankenstein” could kick into its initially planned production date. Admittedly, though, it’s expected that the film could move at the sluggish, slow pace of the monster itself, with a release date in the later half, or if we have to learn to live with it, 2025. Ultimately, it’s certainly worth the wait for a project that’s made in monster movie heaven.
