    Universal Balking At R-Rating & $150 Million Price Tag; Tom Cruise Not Confirmed For RoleIt's been a long, hard road for Guillermo Del Toro for the past few years. He held on as long as he could with "The Hobbit" before the constant delays eventually forced his hand to get out and moving on to something else.

    Guillermo Del Toro Updates On 'At The Mountains Of Madness,' Aiming For A June 2011 Shoot

    For such a typically garrulous director, Guillermo Del Toro has been strangely quiet since leaving "The Hobbit." That's a relative term, as few can talk up their own projects with the skill that Del Toro can, and he's got a ludicrous number of them circulating, from "Frankenstein," "Jekyll & Hyde" a...
