Kaufman-scripted, del Toro-directed Slaughterhouse-Five adaptation?

io9 reports that Guillermo del Toro is interested in doing an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Fivei with Charlie Kaufman:

Guillermo del Toro has talked to screenwriter Charlie Kaufman about adapting the Kurt Vonnegut novel, as part of a standing multipicture deal he has with Universal. Del Toro told the Daily Telegraph:
Charlie [Kaufman] and I talked for about an hour-and-a-half and came up with a perfect way of doing the book. 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. It's just a catch-22. 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? Charlie Kaufman is a very expensive writer!
This is still speculation and all, and considering del Toro's track record with movie productions, it's a little early to get excited about this. But I don't care. I really want this to happen.
