Guillermo Del Toro will "fight" to ensure his new big screen take on Frankenstein is not made in 3D - because he's convinced the groundbreaking technology is not suitable for classic tales.
The Pan's Labyrinth director is set to re-imagine Mary Shelley's classic horror novel for the big screen, but is adamant he does not want to take his monster movie down the same path as 3D hits such as Avatar and Toy Story 3.
He tells Digital Spy, "I don't want to see Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice and see Mr Darcy in 3D. I don't want to see Wuthering Heights in 3D.
"I do believe that big spectacle movies like Avatar or At The Mountains Of Madness or The Haunted Mansion should be in 3D.
"Frankenstein, I will fight for it not to be in 3D, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde I wouldn't like it to be 3D."
The new Frankenstein film is set for a 2012 release.
