Guillermo del Toro to wrangle Frankenstein?

Not before The Hobbit, hopefully

Our pal Guillermo del Toro isn't planning on sitting by the phone waiting for a call from Pete Jackson's people for the next few weeks.

Instead, he's sitting around doodling pictures of classic movie monsters. Or, to put it another way, he's planning a Frankenstein movie.

Discussing the project's state of play during the Writers' Strike, del Toro said: “I started doing some notes before the strike. I can only draw now.”

For the rest of the story, including del Toro discussing his "chocolate bar physique” head on over to MTV News.
