#SPOTTED: JACOB ELORDI IN TORONTO FOR “FRANKENSTEIN”
Hot off the announcement that Andrew Garfield has dropped-out of Guillermo del Toro‘s FRANKENSTEIN due to delays as a result of the SAG-AFTRA strike, we get the exciting news that red-hot Jacob Elordi will be taking over the coveted role of Frankestein‘s Monster. The upcoming Netflix film, a take on Mary Shelley‘s timeless story, is set to begin production shortly in del Toro‘s favourite city of choice.
Others starring in the Film include Oscar Isaac as Victor Frankenstein, Mia Goth, Felix Kammerer, Lars Mikkelsen, David Bradley, Christian Convery and two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz.
Elordi is riding a high off the massive popularity of HBO‘s Euphoria, the acclaimed Sofia Coppola film PRISCILLA (also filmed here in Toronto) and also the viral buzz of Emerald Fennell‘s SALTBURN. He is set to host SNL with Musical Guest Renée Rapp this weekend, January 20, 2024. Does it get any bigger?
This is our second time meeting the charming and kind Elordi, who was gracious with fans, with his dog Layla who has Service Dog certification, in tow even. We were so fortunate to get him to sign our PRISCILLA shirt from A24/Elevation Pictures, and even got a selfie together with beanie!
del Toro does no wrong. We are so excited to see his spin on FRANKENSTEIN!
