Guillermo Del Toro On Turning Down Se7en

Did you know that Guillermo del Toro turned down an offer to direct Se7en? The Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth director explains the decision to Rotten Tomatoes:

"I rightfully said no to Se7en, because it was a great script but it was a very cynical view of the world. And I loved it, I wanted to see it, but I'm a romantic, fat bastard and I don't subscribe to that view."
