Guillermo del Toro may have broken many a heart by dropping out of directing The Hobbit (a decision he said was "the biggest heartbreak of his life professionally”), but make no mistake, the man is ready to move on.
Next week the Oscar-nominated Pan’s Labyrinth director visits Comic-Con to preview Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, a horror flick starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce hitting theaters in January, 2011 which he produced and co-wrote. Right after the geek-fest, he’ll announce his next directing project. “It’s a pretty big one,” the Mexican master of fantasy and horror teased.
Now we're wondering what, exactly, it will be. The lead contender in the rumor mill is a new version of Frankenstein, a project that del Toro has wanted to, well, resurrect, for years. What do you think he should do next? Go ahead and dream up a few more great tales for del Toro— who has no fewer than 12 projects on to-do list—to tackle.
