Del Toro is developing a English-language stage musical of Pan's Labyrinth. He's been working on the adaptation for four years in secret. As the celebrated storyteller scripted its book with Jeremy Ungar, he has also been meeting with directors, librettists and composers.

Guillermo del Toro Wants To Make The Justice League Of Monster Movies
Guillermo del Toro is theoretically the most busy man in Hollywood, as he seems to be constantly announcing some new project or producing effort, adding story after story onto the pile until it's clear he couldn't get any of it done in a single lifetime. But in the time since Hellboy 2: The Golden Army was released in 2008, del Toro has released precisely zero films as a director

Guillermo del Toro Talks Frankenstein And Playing Chess With The MPAA On The Set Of Mama
t's not just moviemaking that del Toro somehow makes the time for. He spent an hour chatting with us on the set of Mama, as if he had absolutely nowhere else to be, and then invited us to a screening that night at Toronto's Bell Lightbox theater, where he would be presenting the obscure Italian horror movie L'acrno Incantatore (we went; it was very strange but kind of a thrill)

On The Set Of Mama, First-Time Director Andy Muschietti Taps Into Childhood Fears
Is Mama a horror movie? Depends on who you ask. Star Jessica Chastain, who freely admits to being a scaredy cat, most definitely says yes. The film's visual effects supervisor Ed Taylor says absolutely not-- "I like to call it a ghost story. It’s about hope, it’s about what a parent is - how do you define a parent? And it’s about fighting for what you love."

On The Set Of Mama, Witnessing Jessica Chastain's Transformation And Getting Scared Right Along With Her
I saw Jessica Chastain in 5 different movies in 2011, and yet when I saw her walk in a room in October of last year, I didn't recognize her. And in a way you might not expect from a young starlet on a very fast rise to fame, she seemed completely delighted to fly under the radar. "Did you know it was me when I walked in?" she asked with a laugh after sitting down with group of journalists

Guillermo Del Toro, Rian Johnson And More Being Considered For Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Earlier this month the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, ran into a crisis. Despite earning critical acclaim for his work, director Rupert Wyatt made the decision to leave the project, feeling that the studio wasn't giving him enough time to do the film properly. This, of course, left 20th Century Fox with a huge problem that they needed to resolve quickly, and it was immediately apparent that the job would become one of the most sought after in Hollywood.

Guillermo Del Toro-Produced Mama Conjures A Terrifying Trailer
It has been far too long since Guillermo del Toro last directed a film (his most recent was 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army). And since it will be another year until we get to see Pacific Rim, we have to settle on films del Toro “presents,” the next of which will be the ghost thriller Mama, due in theaters early next year. Instead of describing it, we’re happy to post the first official trailer, provided by Universal. It’s chilling.

It's not exactly hard to recognize a Guillermo del Toro movie, particularly if it's part of the fantasy genre. The filmmaker has a defined aesthetic that is most notable in creature design and mystical worlds. Naturally, this could have had a significant effect on The Hobbit.

Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim Reveals Plot Description
If you're like me, you need little urging to see anything associated with Guillermo Del Toro, the visionary filmmaker behind Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy. As soon as I heard about Del Toro's upcoming sci-fi epic Pacific Rim, I was on board on principle. Even when Del Toro is only producing pictures—say Splice or Don't Be Afraid of the Dark for instance—the results are usually visually striking enough to be worth my time, but when he's actually helming, audiences are assured something extraordinary, unlike they've ever seen before.

Hangover Part III, 300 Sequel Get Release Dates, Pacific Rim Pushed Back
The success of Zack Snyder's 300 actually had a fairly significant impact on film scheduling. Released in early March of 2006, the film showed studios that there was potential in releasing blockbusters that early in the year. In fact, all but one of Snyder's projects have been released on that weekend since. But the sequel to 300, 300: The Battle of Artemisium, isn't being directed by Snyder and apparently won't even have the special release date.
