Mary Shelley's classic horror tale of science gone awry has given Hollywood shambling visions of cemetery horror for decades, among them Boris Karloff's iconic 1930s performances and Robert DeNiro's very different take in the 1994 Kenneth Branagh remake. Next up? Guillermo Del Toro says that after he finishes the two-film version of " The Hobbit" he will turn his attention to the gothic morality tale and that actor Doug Jones (Abe Sapien in "Hellboy") might play the patchwork man. This one is still a long way off; "The Hobbit" films are due in theaters in 2010 and 2011. Del Toro has also talked about making a "Slaughterhouse Five" remake.
