Guillermo del Toro to Animate the Day of the Dead
Yet another project is in the works for the great Guillermo del Toro, and this one is right up his alley! Read on for all the details which just so happen to fit like a glove!
According to Variety, Guillermo del Toro has come onboard with Reel FX to produce a CG-animated film with the working title Day of the Dead. Del Toro will also present the film, directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez from a script he wrote with Gutierrez and Doug Langdale. Reel FX will produce alongside Aaron Berger and Carina Schulze of Chatrone.
The flick's story will be a Romeo and Juliet-style tale set against a Mexican Day of the Dead backdrop. It's the first time since 1993's Cronos that del Toro has collaborated on a feature project set in Mexico.
"This is a colorful, vibrant, vital fable that utilizes the animation medium in an incredible way," del Toro said of the project.
Day of the Dead is scheduled to be released in fall 2014.
