    Guillermo Del Toro To Produce CG Flick ‘Day Of The Dead’ | Geeks of Doom

    As has become a habit, Guillermo del Toro is adding yet another project to his to-do list.

    Del Toro is now set to produce Day of the Dead, a CGI-animated feature about a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set during the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday tracing back to the Aztecs that celebrates those who we’ve lost. It’s also said that music will play an important part in the movie, and that numerous international A-list recording artists will be brought in to perform both original songs and covers of iconic songs for the soundtrack.



    The movie will be directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, who also wrote the screenplay with Doug Langdale. Gutierrez has never directed a feature (only a short titled Carmelo), but has worked as a producer, writer, character designer, and production designer on the Nickelodeon animated series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, among some other things.

    Langdale also wrote on El Tigre, and has worked on many other animated TV series such as Darkwing Duck, Earthworm Jim, The Weekenders, The Looney Tunes Show, and Kung-Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.

    Of the announcement, del Toro said:

    I have admired Jorge’s work for a long time. He has a unique aesthetic and sense of humor. Day of the Dead offers a perfect opportunity for his sensibilities to shine.

    This is a colorful, vibrant, vital fable that utilizes the animation medium in an incredible way. The object of the tale is not only to talk about life but to dazzle us – jolt us- into living to the fullest. To join Reel FX, Cary Granat and Jorge in this adventure is a privilege and a joy.

    Guillermo del Toro and Angryfilms to Option Spec Script THE BLOODY BENDERS

    Add another one to the massive list of Guillermo del Toro’s ongoing projects (he just wrapped on Pacific Rim and will spend the next year in post, but is also attached to direct Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson, is producing the animated Day of the Dead and his production effort, Rise of the Guardians debuts November 21st). This time around, del Toro is optioning a spec script by Adam Robitel, a protege of Bryan Singer’s (X-Men). The Bloody Benders is a genre-mashup that is equal parts Western, horror, thriller and love story. It centers on the true accounts of the Benders, a family who ran a hotel on the outskirts of the Kansas prairie in 1873. As the title suggests, the Benders were not the most accommodating of hosts; up to 20 people that checked in were robbed and murdered without the Benders ever being prosecuted. Sounds like a picture that’s thematically right up del Toro’s alley. Hit the jump for more on The Bloody Benders.

    Deadline reports that del Toro will team with Angryfilms’ Susan Montford and Don Murphy on The Bloody Benders. Del Toro is expected to do a polish on Robitel’s script but also noted that the team is eager to move forward and place a director shortly. Here are del Toro’s comments on the thematic nature of The Bloody Benders:


    “It is a beautiful and brutal yet poetic story, based on a very famous case. If you consider America back then, it was a great transition to modernity, but on the prairie, these were huge landscapes where people traveled and days and weeks on end would pass without communication. So nothing happens, then there is this brutal murder, and then it’s back to pastoral peace and quiet. That rhythm was very attractive to me. The time was so lax back then that the sheriff would show up and say, ‘What is that odor coming through the vent that smells like decomposing flesh?’ and the Benders said they didn’t know. And the sheriff said, ‘Would you mind if I take a look…tomorrow?’ Nobody was in a hurry, and that is a big reason why they got away with it.”

    Interesting. I never even thought of the connection.

    I should try reading HPL again someday.
