Guillermo Del Toro Piecing Together Frankenstein For TV

Guillermo del Toro isn't content enough to sit back on his Pan's Labyrinth earnings and let Hellboy 2: The Golden Army just ride the coattails of the original film into the box office. He's rumbling about a new television version of the mad scientist classic Frankentstein. "The only way to do the Shelley novel is to actually do a four-hour miniseries," said Del Toro, which is probably the smartest comment we've ever heard about adopting this book into a project. We say, you go, Guillermo. We know you could easily trump that Kenneth Branagh / Robert De Niro version. [MTV Movie Blog]
