We can all rest easy. Turns out all of those Internet rumors were true: Hellboy 2 director Guillermo del Toro is not a fan of weepy rom-coms and will never ever direct a movie starring Meg Ryan or rabid Manhattan cougars. Page Six got the scoop of scoops by way of an interview in Complex magazine…
“No way. Sleepless in Seattle can go fuck itself,” Guillermo Del Toro said. “Monsters are the most beautiful creatures in the universe. I have no interest in everyday life, except through a twisted mirror.”
Slashfilm tracked down Everyday Life in its mundane cubicle on Friday for a comment and this is what it had to say…
“Listen, I know I’m lame. If Guillermo has a problem with me, it’s understandable. Now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s only one Almond Joy left in the office snack machine, and I want snag it for later. Congratulations on the superlative mention in Vanity Fair by the way. [incoherent mumbling]“
So, we guess that settles it. Shocked? Wouldn’t it be cool to see the director of Pan’s Labyrinth redo You’ve Got Mail as a deranged horror fantasy?
Discuss: Uh oh, there’s an unrelated Tarsem vs Guillermo del Toro fight over visionary-dom going down in the comments.
