Guillermo Del Toro to Co-Direct 3D Stop-Motion Animated PINOCCHIO

New Stop Motion Annimation of Pinocchio coming your wayby Matt Goldberg, Source: Collider.com

In February 2011, we reported that Guillermo Del Toro was developing a 3D stop-motion animated adaptation of Pinocchio with author Gris Grimly and Mark Gustafson co-directing based off Grimly’s 2002 book. Today, Variety reports that Del Toro has now stepped in to co-direct with Gustafson (there’s no mention of Grimly). Del Toro is currently in post-production on the blockbuster monster movie Pacific Rim, which is due out July 12, 2013. He and Gustafson (animation director for Fantastic Mr. Fox) plan to start a year-long shoot for Pinocchio in summer 2013. Del Toro wrote the script with Grimly and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark co-writer Matthew Robbins. Continue reading “Guillermo Del Toro to Co-Direct 3D Stop-Motion Animated PINOCCHIO” »

Guillermo Del Toro says Prometheus killed his Mountains of Madness`

GuillermoBy Don Kaye, Source: Blastr.com

Director Guillermo Del Toro has revealed that his personal dream project, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, may finally be dead once and for all. And Ridley Scott killed it.

As previously reported, Del Toro spent 12 years developing a big-screen version of Lovecraft’s classic novella only to see Universal Pictures pull the plug last year after balking at the film’s R-rated horror content and massive $150 million budget. But although Del Toro still held out hope at the time of getting the movie made some day, that hope may now have faded for good.

Cameron + del Toro + Gaiman = $300 million epic Chinese trilogy?

Journey to the West is coming our way

Does it even matter what they’re working on, given the trio’s Oscar-winning, dream-summoning, monster-mashing resume? Well, since you asked, it’s a $300 million adaptation of a 500-year-old Chinese folk legend. Yes, that feeling is your interest getting piqued.

Gaiman has been hired by Chinese TV producer Zhang Jizhong to write Journey to the West, a planned film trilogy that would tell of the Monkey King, who traveled from China to India in search of Buddha’s scrolls and brought a monk, a pig spirit and a fish spirit along with him.

Del Toro may not direct At the Mountains of Madness after all

Not so quick for the next big epic by Del Toro

We’ve been looking forward for what seems like forever to Guillermo del Toro’s big-budget, R-rated, epic adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, with James Cameron producing. Well, now it looks like the project may not get off the ground anytime soon—and del Toro himself may have to move on.

Although a seemingly erroneous report went online earlier today that the movie was going to start shooting in June with Tom Cruise confirmed for the lead role, the story rapidly took a downward turn from there. According to Deadline, Universal Studios, which has been developing the movie with the director, is hesitant to commit $150 million to an R-rated horror film—even with Cruise interested in starring and fans everywhere salivating over the prospect of del Toro finally making his dream project after 12 years of development.

Guillermo Del Toro And David Eick To Create New ‘Hulk’ TV Series For ABC And Marvel

Hey Kids Look Who's Coming Back!!

As part of Marvel’s big push onto the small screen, the Hellboy director and the Battlestar Galactica producer are teaming up to bring the Not-So-Jolly Green Giant to ABC in the fall of 2012.

This new Hulk series will be likely be an origin story, featuring an energized, twentysomething Bruce Banner. And while the various movie Hulks were entirely CGI beasts, the series will use a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI to realize Banner’s alter ago, the design of which will be overseen by Del Toro. The two men will develop the pilot episode’s story together, with Eick doing the scripting and Del Toro directing—if he’s free from his other 94 commitments.

Guillermo del Toro explains why there may never be a Hellboy 3

Hellboy 3, Maybe?

Hellboy, a fun film about a demon who defends humanity, hit theaters in 2004. Its equally fun sequel, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, came out in 2008. If this were a math puzzle, we’d logically deduce that Hellboy 3 should be released in … four plus eight equals … 2012. But … no. Writer/director Guillermo del Toro explains why.
