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.
