guillermo del toroWith fanboys still reeling from the news that Guillermo del Toro is developing a newer, scarier version of 'The Haunted Mansion' for Disney, the director has also confirmed that he is moving ahead with work on his rumored 'Frankenstein' flick.

In an interview with MTV, Del Toro said he plans to begin early work on 'Frankenstein' in the next few weeks.

He also revealed that Doug Jones, the actor who slipped on a scaly bodysuit to play Abe Sapien in the director's 'Hellboy' movies and portrayed the Pale Man in 'Pan's Labyrinth,' is prepping to play the classic movie monster.

"Frankenstein-- in the next few weeks we are doing a very, very thorough makeup test on Doug Jones. And we're gonna film it," Del Toro said.
