Guillermo Del Toro's Update From the Saturn Awards | Win a Trip to Meet GDT

Guillermo del Toro at the 36th Annual Saturn Awards.
He'll be "shopping"the SDCC floor all 3 days!

Guillermo del Toro updated Collider on all projects including Hellboy III, Death: The High Cost of Living, Frankenstein and at the Mountains of Madness while backstage at the 36th Annual Saturn Awards.

The 20 minute video interview with GDT reveals the following highlights:

Frankenstein is still in the works and Doug Jones will play the monster. Sculpting is done and testing will be done with Doug soon.

Hellboy III will only happen after his next project.

Doesn't reveal what his next project is
but says he wants to make something a bit smaller this time. He has narrowed his list of projects to 3 and they all have scripts much further along. The script he really wants to do he started 15 years ago!

He said that leaving The Hobbit was "the hardest decision he has made", and when asked if MGM sorted out their troubles, would it be a possibility he would get back on board, he said "it hurts me to even speculate".

A Death: The High Cost of Living movie still very much holds his interest, but both he and the other potential producers are convinced that the only director should be Neil Gaimen.

He'll be promoting Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark at Comic Con where he will be announcing a project he will be writing, producing and maybe directing. He'll be at San Diego Comic-Con for 3 days to do some "shopping" for his man cave (his second home).

He says that since he has come home from New Zealand, he has been approached to direct a lot of projects by various studios. He doesn't say anything specific, but reveals that there is "a lot of neat stuff cooking", and a lot of the films would be "geekgasms for everyone".

Talks Splice.

Says his brother is making for him the car from the movie The Car (1977) starring James Brolin! He’ll be driving around Los Angeles in 3 months in it. Love it! Director Sean McConville's (Deadline) latest supernatural film is by the same name, The Car. Ryan Davies is haunted by a ghost chick who convinces him to hunt down and kill her abductors while restoring his Pontiac Gto Le Manns.
