Director Guillermo Del Toro has spent a career working with monsters, and according to MTV, the director now has plans to tackle another one - Frankenstein's Monster!

Del Toro revealed that he has "always been" interested in directing a new version of Frankenstein, and that he is hard at work doing pre-production. Due to the WGA strike, he is unable to work on a script, but he is currently creating illustrations and images that he hopes to use to create the world of the classic monster and his creator, Victor Frankenstein.

"I started doing some notes before the strike," Del Toro states, "I can only draw now."

Del Toro is known for his work on Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Pan's Labyrinth and Blade 2.
