Orphanage Director Gets Hater Gig
Good news today for those of you waiting for more information on the Guillermo del Toro-produced adaptation of David Moody’s novel Hater; Universal has brought on The Orphanage helmer Juan Antonio Bayona to direct the film, according to Variety.
That’s good news for Orphanage fans as well, since I’m sure most of you have been wondering what he’d get his hands on next. Hater tells the story of an epidemic of violence that sweeps across the world, perpetrated by the most average of citizens.
"I like the idea of a movie that talks about the state of fear we live in nowadays," Bayone told the trade. Indeed the young director seems like a great choice to me, though the subject matter between this and his debut couldn’t be more different. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
