Apparently, Guillermo del Toro's Frankenstein movie isn't an adaptation of the book. It's an adventure movie about the continuing saga of the Monster.
I'm down with it. The world doesn't really need another adaptation of the novel and it sounds like del Toro has a story he wants to tell. I'd like to hear it.
I tend to like Further Adventures-style storytelling anyway. Although it doesn't always work out well...
Still, I'm looking forward to seeing del Toro's interpretation of the Monster.
He also promises that unlike Kenneth Branagh, he will not appear shirtless in his version.
