The Old Ones are coming...
There's a great new interview by Daniel Zalewski with Guillermo del Toro over at the New Yorker magazine that is really interesting...
I really like the way Zalewski writes, almost creating a narrative story out of a simple interview. Guillermo sheds light on several of his upcoming ("At the Mountains of Madness," "The Haunted Mansion") as well as aborted projects ("The Hobbit") and provides an in depth look into the mind of one of the most interesting film makers working today. If you're a pop culture geek, a comic book lover or a Disney fan, there's something in there for everyone.
Take a look and be in the know before everyone else is...
So happy Del Toro isn't directing The Hobby. He's just too dark and too weird for it. Middle Earth belongs to Peter Jackson.
I think Del Toro would have made a great Hobbit, that said, I'm happy that Jackson is back behind the camera. I just hope his heart is in it, I don't want him doing this out of an obligation to the studio.
I wish he'd have talked more about the Haunted Mansion do over. Just a line or two is not much new info. Will he direct it now? He said he'd know by the new year.
I'm so disappointed Double Dare you fell through, now he is working with Dreamworks :/
Hopefully though after mountains, we'll start to see The Haunted Mansion pick up.
I hope that At the Mountains of Madness films this summer, if only for the fact that it means Del Toro can shoot Haunted Mansion at the end of the year.
I wonder if those Tom Cruise rumors will turn out to be true?
Funny, I remember a lot of people blaming Disney for the failure of the Double Dare You! deal, but it appears that it was just a result of his timing with filming the Hobbit that killed it. Maybe filming Mansion can somehow revive part of that deal someday?
Wow, that was a good interview! I can't wait to see what Del Toro does with Haunted Mansion. The man is a genius.
