    So Universal has tied up Del Bore-o until he's like, what? Ninety?

    I have a hard time believing he's going to be doing all of those, we're talking:

    The Hobbit
    The Hobbit 2
    Hellboy III
    Drood
    Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
    Frankenstein
    Slaughterhouse Five
    At the Mountains of Madness (also listed by Variety in same article)

    How many directors have booked themselves 8 films out? It's unrealistic. I also doubt Frankenstein will be pushed at minimal five years out, considering Wolfman is coming next year they're going to want to strike while the iron's hot if that's a success.

    I love Guillermo and all, but Slaughterhouse Five? It's really pointless to try to translate that to film.

    At the same time, I'd love to see him take on Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll might be fun.

    At the Mountains of Madness is just a dream project of his, but I doubt any studio will finance it. Too bad, Del Toro doing Lovecraft would be fantastic.

    Bring it on, I havnt been dissapointed with any of his films yet.
     
  7. Frankenstein sounds great. After Pan's Labyrinth, I'd enjoy seeing what he could do with Slaughterhouse Five. Actually, if it were up to me he would skip the Hellboys and Hobbitses and get straight to those remakes!
     
  8. I say bring it on! I love just about everything this man does.

    I am totally down with these, very much looking forward to decent new versions. I hope they've added a line into the contract saying he's got to turn in films no longer than 100 minutes. I don't need a three hour version of anything on the list................
