Jacob Elordi, the heartthrob from Euphoria and Priscilla, is set to take on a monstrous new role in Guillermo Del Toro’s Frankenstein adaptation for Netflix. That’s right, he’s stepping into the shoes of Andrew Garfield, who was initially tapped for the part but has taken a back seat to Elordi.

This news comes hot on the heels of Del Toro’s confirmation that he will write and direct the project. And if that’s not exciting enough, Elordi will be joined by the likes of Oscar Isaac, Christopher Waltz, and Felix Kammerer. It’s shaping up to be a star-studded monster mash!

For those who may not be up to date with Elordi’s recent endeavors, he’s been making waves as Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla and also starred in Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn. And who could forget his breakout role as Nate Jacobs on HBO’s Euphoria? The man is on fire!

Now, let’s talk about Del Toro’s track record. This won’t be his first time working with Netflix, as he previously brought us the award-winning Pinocchio adaptation. The man knows how to breathe life into a classic tale, and we can’t wait to see what he does with Frankenstein.

Isaac, who you may recognize from the Star Wars sequel trilogy and the mind-bending Ex Machina, will also be joining the cast. And let’s not forget Goth, who has made a name for herself in the horror genre with her work on Pearl and the upcoming MaXXXine.

Oh, and did we mention Waltz and Kammerer? You know, the Django Unchained star and the talent from All Quiet on the Western Front? Yeah, they’re in on this too. It’s safe to say that this project is shaping up to be a monster hit.

In case you needed more confirmation, Deadline was the first to report this casting news. So, mark your calendars and get ready for the Frankenstein adaptation of a lifetime. It’s going to be electrifying!
