Director Guillermo del Toro is a master of blending fantasy with reality.

And in these fantastical stories, he also brings humanity, giving weight to larger than life scenarios.

“I don’t think it will happen. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from my side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters.”
