It's kind of a running joke how many projects Guillermo del Toro is always attached to—so it goes, he is very excitable—but, uh, via FilmDrunk comes this post on the Playlist about oh, no big deal, just Guillermo del Toro teaming up with Charlie Kaufman to make a new film version of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five.

JESUS. That would be... man. Holy shit. Okay. Del Toro!

"Charlie [Kaufman] and I talked for about an hour-and-a-half and came up with a perfect way of doing the book," he told the Daily Telegraph. "I love the idea of the Trafalmadorians [the aliens of Slaughterhouse-Five]—to be 'unstuck in time,' where everything is happening at the same time. And that's what I want to do."

Yeah! Okay! Del Toro, Kaufman, and the Spirit of Vonnegut all coming together to make something awesome is as close to a real-life Avengers team as I can imagine. I've never even bothered seeing the all-but-forgotten 1972 film version—I always just knew in my gut it didn't have a chance of standing next to the book. Something made by del Toro and Kaufman, though? Yeah. Something like that might.
