    Emma Watson To Star In Guillermo Del Toro Produced 'Beauty And The Beast'

    The list of Guillermo Del Toro produced films long ago surpassed the levels of being absurd and comically long but what the hell, he's just added another one but unlike the myriad of other projects in various stages of development this one has a pretty big name already attached.

    Guillermo Del Toro's 'Mimic' Getting A Director's Cut BluRay Release With 7 More Minutes Of Footage

    While Guillermo Del Toro is still no stranger to facing hurdles in getting his films made -- his participation in "The Hobbit" was stalled out by the endless financial woes of MGM and more recently, his R-rated take of "At The Mountains Of Madness" was killed by a nervous Universal -- those are prob...

    'Babel' Oscar-Nominee Rinko Kikuchi Bags Female Lead In Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim'

    Comic-Con is nearly upon us: we're only two weeks away from the descent of the geek world on their San Diegan Mecca, although many have been worried, considering Marvel's decision to skip Hall H this year, that there wouldn't be much worth going for. But Legendary Pictures, backers of "The Dark Knight," "300" and "Clash of the Titans," have announced that they're taking four big projects to the Coachella of sci-fi/fantasy, and the press release is unusual for two reasons: firstly (and more on this shortly) not an inch of film will have been shot on any of the four, and secondly, because they've left slip a major piece of casting on the most i...

    Guillermo Del Toro "Not Giving Up" On Adaptation Of H.P. Lovecraft's 'At The Mountain Of Madness'

    The fall of Guillermo Del Toro's attempted James Cameron-produced adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "At The Mountain Of Madness" has been somewhat redeemed by the helmer's gestating monster-flick "Pacific Rim," which now has Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day and Idris Elba all set to star, but if we got anyt...

    Guillermo del Toro Would Also Like To Direct ‘Maleficent’ (If Given The Chance)

    Guillermo del Toro might be distinguishable to many for his rotund physique, but he’s better known these days, production-wise at least, for stretching himself too thin. Since his last film -- 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” -- he famously hotfooted it from “The Hobbit” over a year ago, citing production delays even before MGM declared bankruptcy, though he’s yet to get started on a new project, even as Peter Jackson’s two-part epic began production earlier in the year. Conventional logic would dictate that del Toro’s long overdue for getting a Spanish-language “one for me” out of his system along the lines of “The Devil’s Backbone” and ...

    Watch: Full Trailer For 'Puss In Boots' Introduces Prison Rape Jokes To The 'Shrek' Franchise

    Last year's "Shrek Forever After" was billed as the "final chapter" in the DreamWorks fairytale franchise, but with the four films grossing nearly $3 billion worldwide between them ("Shrek 2" remains the fifth biggest domestic grosser), the likelihood of Katzenberg & Co leaving the series alone was ...

    Charlie Hunnam Bags Lead Role In Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim'

    Guillermo Del Toro hasn't had the best run of luck in recent years. The Oscar-nominated "Pan's Labyrinth" might have catapulted him onto the A-list after years of developing a burgeoning cult, but he hasn't made a film since 2008's "Hellboy II: The Golden Army." The Mexican director spent years on "The Hobbit" before leaving the project last summer due to frustrations over delays, and the financial uncertainty of MGM, while his pet project, the $150 million R-rated H.P. Lovecraft adaptation "At The Mountains Of Madness" was scrapped by Universal when a compromise couldn't be reached on the film's rating, despite the presence of James Cameron ...

    Update: Travis Beacham has once again hit Twitter and has put the kibosh on the rumors swirling saying, "The situation in Japan is NOT tripping up PAC/RIM.
