has posted a new video interview with Guillermo del Toro from the Toronto International Film Festival. In the interview, del Toro talks about At the Mountains of Madness
, The Haunted Mansion
, and reveals that he has a video game deal!
Reveals he just finished a rewrite and turned it into James Cameron and the other producers last week. They are on week two of designs. Dennis Muren is doing the designing. Del Toro says Muren told him “you’ve never seen monsters like this.”
Says Haunted Mansion will be PG-13 and we talk about the tone of the movie. Says it will be a “dark ride” and it will combine the two spirits that built the mansion. Says “one was very playful and one was quite dark and twisted and the result is the unique flavor of the mansion.”
Says he has a video game deal that will be for 3 games over 10 years and they’ll officially announce it soon. Basically every 3 years a new game.

Although I still haven't read my copy of a Lovecraft collection, I've been looking forward to del Toro's adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness
since it was first hinted that the may take on the project. I'm also very curious now to hear more details on this video game deal. I haven't had time to watch the interview yet; I wanted to get it up here as quickly as I could for others to see. Del Toro may be my favorite director working today, so I'm excited for everything he touches.
