Of course you do! And Guillermo D del Toro is laboring to make it happen, attaching the Being John Malkovich scribe to an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's seminal novel for Universal. There's just one problem: "The studio will make it when it's my next movie, but how can I commit to it being my next movie until there's a screenplay?" Del Toro tells the Telegraph. "Charlie Kaufman is a very expensive writer!" Guillermo! Commit to that one right now. We'll wait for the other movies.
