My goodness. Guillermo del Toro (“Pacific Rim”) wants to do “Hellboy 3”, “Frankenstein”, “Crimson Peak” and more. You can add “Slaughterhouse-Five”. Apparently he and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (“Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind”) are on the same page to adapt the Kurt Vonnegut classic. But even del Toro admits that Universal hasn’t committed and if they do, it’s likely to be a long ways off.
