Charlie Kaufman to Write Film Adaptation of Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five


Guillermo del Toro (director of Pan’s Labyrinth and the upcoming movie Pacific Rim) has recently announced that he has selected Charlie Kaufman as the writer of the screenplay for del Toro’s film adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five.

Kaufman, famous for writing the screenplays behind such mind-bending and unsettlingly funny works as Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, was described by del Toro as “perfect” and “very expensive.” Great choice, sir.
