Guillermo del Toro has signed on to write and direct an animated picture for Dreamworks Animation called “Trollhunters”. Now this is not to be confused with the upcoming mockumentary Norwegian film “Troll Hunter which you can find info about HERE.
Trollhunters is based on a forthcoming youth novel by del Toro.
Guillermo said in an interview, “ animation has caught his eye because he believes that during the next 10 years, the entertainment landscape will shift into a transmedia world — a confluence of movies, TV, books, video and online — and artists will need to be educated in all aspects of media.”
“Transmedia,” he said, “will not just be a buzz word.”
Anything by Del Toro, I am interested in. This is one to keep your eye on.
