Fresh off his Oscar win for The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro has attached himself to so many projects in the past year that it’s honestly become hard to even keep track. And that’s a good problem for all of us to have, we assure you. One of those projects is a horror anthology series for Netflix, which we totally forgot about until Deadline reminded us today.
The series is titled “Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight,“ and the site reports that Netflix will be filming it in Toronto, as they’ve just chosen the production space.
For both “10 After Midnight” and feature film Let It Snow, Netflix “will lease four sound stages along with office space and support space totaling approximately 164,000 square feet at Cinespace Studios and will also lease four sound stages and adjacent office space comprising a total footprint of approximately 84,580 square feet at Pinewood Toronto Studios.”
Not a major update, mind you, but a fresh reminder that this super cool project is coming soon. “Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight” is set to be a collection of the Oscar-winning filmmaker’s personally curated stories, described as both equally sophisticated and horrific. Del Toro will reportedly write and direct certain episodes of the series.
For the other episodes, del Toro will hand-pick top horror writers and new filmmakers.
