It's been a long time since we've had an update on Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of the book Slaughterhouse-Five. I didn't think it would ever happen, but never say never! There's a chance that it might! The book is set in World War II and and centers on time jumping and an alien abduction. In a recent interview with The Hunffington Post the director revealed that Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malcovich, Adaptation, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) was working on developing it with him initially. 

I will tell you, my idea was to get Charlie Kaufman to write it. And I spoke to Charlie Kaufman about it and we came up with an idea on how to approach it, which I thought was very, very interesting. But, it was right at the time I went and started "Pacific Rim." So the studio, they didn't want to invest in that »
