Guillermo del Toro

Director Guillermo del Toro has spent a few years trying to get Killing on Carnival Row made. Written by Pacific Rim scribe Travis Beacham, the dark fantasy tale once had del Toro set to direct and Hugh Jackman attached to star. That iteration of the project fell apart, but over a year ago, the rights reverted to Beacham, and he and del Toro decided to develop the story into an Amazon series with the help of Legendary Pictures. Amazon has ordered the pilot for the show, now titled Carnival Row, in addition to a few other titles.

Below, learn more about the five Amazon pilots.

Michael Shannon in Midnight Special

It’s not remotely surprising when Guillermo del Toro manages to attract top-level talent for his movies, but it’s welcome news all the same. Michael Shannon is the latest actor to sign on for del Toro’s next movie, an otherwordly Cold War romance that also stars Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. More details on the Guillermo del Toro Michael Shannon casting below.  Read More »

Richard Jenkins in Olive Kitteridge

Guillermo del Toro has about a hundred different projects cooking at any given moment, but as we reported back in March, his next directorial effort is a Cold War romance starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Of course, del Toro being del Toro, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill period piece.

Earlier reports vaguely alluded to an “otherwordly” element, and now we might have a better idea of just what that might mean. A new report claims Richard Jenkins is looking to join the del Toro project… and that the story might involve an amphibious man.   Read More »

bleak house

Partially inspired by the original research library at Disney studios, where artists were surrounded by inspiring images, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro wanted to create a space for himself to fuel his imagination. The Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak director built a second house for himself, known as both the man cave and, inspired by the Charles Dickens‘ novel, the “Bleak House.”

Del Toro has shared videos and images from the Bleak House in the past, but now his epic collection of memorabilia will go on display for movie fans, at least for movie fans in select cities. Learn more about the Bleak House exhibit below.

del toro michael stuhlbarg

If you backed me into a corner and demanded to know who I think is the finest actor alive today, I’d say Michael Stuhlbarg. Actually, you don’t even have to back me into a corner and you don’t have to make any demands. I’ll just say it: Michael Stuhlbarg is our finest working actor. He’s played gangsters and professors and aliens and tech geeks and film historians and old-timey congressmen and he’s vanished into each and every role. You will never catch him telling a lie on camera.

Every Michael Stuhlbarg role is a reason to cheer. But Michael Stuhlbarg signing up for the next film from Guillermo del Toro? That’s a reason to throw a party.

Since Crimson Peak hit theaters, Guillermo del Toro‘s fans have wondered what project he might tackle next. And it feels like a new possibility presents itself each week, from a Fantastic Voyage remake for James Cameron to a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation to a black-and-white luchador movie. But now it seems he’s finally made a decision on his next movie — and not only that, he’s already begun assembling a kick-ass cast.

Sally Hawkins has reportedly been set to star in del Toro’s untitled next film, which is set up at Fox Searchlight, while Octavia Spencer is currently in talks. The project is described as a Cold War drama, but in typical del Toro fashion it sounds like there’s a fantastical twist.  Read More »
