Director Guillermo del Toro as confirmed to IGN that he is indeed working on a Justice League Dark movie for Warner Bros.
The world is coming to an end before the end of the month, which is sad because all the hype for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim isn’t coming out till next Summer. In the mean time take the jump to watch the full length trailer and look at three new posters for the film.
In the newest teaser video for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim the news is covering the kaiju attacks on San Francisco. Click. Jump. Watch. You know the deal.
If you’ve read The Strain, the vampire novel from Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, in book or comic book form, you know the story is pretty intense. Maybe too intense for regular television, which is why FX is interested in the story for a cable television series.
Remember when Ron Perlman donned the Hellboy makeup and costume to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation? Of course you do, we still have tears in our eyes. Turns out, that little moment moved director Guillermo del Toro to reconsider his No More Hellboy Movies stance.
Acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and novelist Chuck Hogan bring their New York Times best-selling series of novels, the Strain Trilogy, to Dark Horse Comics with an ongoing adventure that takes a terrifying spin on the vampire genre.
When the Kaiju rise, who will fight for humanity? That was the pitch at the San Diego Comic Con when Guillermo del Toro announced Pacific Rim. It’s been a year, and now we get an official synopsis from the studio.
Variety is reporting that Guillermo Del Toro will co-direct his first animated feature with Mark Gustafson. The duo will be taking on Pinocchio in a pre-WWII setting.
Sad news for Lovecraft fans who were anticipating an awesome take on H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness by Guillermo del Toro. Sadly, the movie will not be, as Universal passed on the project. GdT cites the hard R rating for the canceling of the project. What is really surprising is that Universal thought they could do an adaptation of Lovecraft’s work that is clearly in the hard horror genre.
Del Toro is now moving on to Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim “a PG-13 movie, involving monsters and the creation of a new world.”
“We started developing PAC RIM a while ago with the mad passion and enthusiasm of a project unwatched and unchecked by politics or comparisons. We designed and shepherded the movie we want to make. We start shooting in September and we hit the ground running because we are so in sync. My partnership with Legendary represents, both in scale and creative demands, a huge step forward for me.”
Boo. Boo, I say.
Many were excited over the news that ABC was in the process of bringing The Hulk back to television in an all new series. The hot rumor this morning might get more people interested in seeing the series as Deadline is reporting that Guillermo Del Toro and David Eick are working on the project together.
While we won’t know the details of the television series just yet, there are already hints of what we might see:
- The series will be an origin story
- Banner will be in his mid-twenties (because all super scientists are 25 years old)
- The Hulk will not be CGI only creation, but a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI.
- Del Toro and Eick are sharing scripting duties for the pilot.
- Del Toro may direct the pilot if he isn’t too busy with other things.
Even though it seems movies get greenlit and go through the production process very quickly, the television series is too early in production for the show to air next fall, but possibly in the fall of 2012 after The Avengers movie is released.
