Guillermo del Toro to Animated Terror With ‘Trollhunters’

Guillermo del Toro has fallen under the spell of animation and is setting up Trollhunters (not to be confused with the Cloverfield-esque Troll Hunters frequently covered on the site), a feature project he will write and direct at DreamWorks Animation. Trollhunters, a working title, is based on a young-adult book del Toro submitted to publisher Hyperion about two weeks ago. “I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary,” he said. “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.” Del Toro has already started writing with plans on finishing it before he shoots At the Mountains of Madness.
