Guillermo del Toro taking “Trollhunters” to DreamWorks Animation


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Has “Hellboy” director Guillermo del Toro traded a “Hobbit” for a troll?

That’s the news out of DreamWorks Animation, where del Toro reportedly will write and direct “Trollhunters” a feature-length cartoon based on a young-adult book that del Toro also penned.

“I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary,” the filmmaker told The Hollywood Reporter. “It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it’s thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff.”

According to the report, del Toro already has begun writing his “Trollhunters” script, and plans on finishing it before he shoots “At the Mountains of Madness,” his adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft novel about an Antarctic expedition.

That’s just one of a number of projects del Toro has announced since leaving “The Hobbit” over conflicts. The director reportedly is serving as a consultant and executive producer on “Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Puss in Boots.” He has discussed developing a “Haunted Mansion” movie for Disney. And he has expressed interest in resurrecting Universal’s traditional horror creatures for modern takes.
