Del Toro busier than a hooker on Valentine’s Day

In a Variety article that notes how busy Guillermo Del Toro will be until 2017, the trade states he’s circling remakes of Frankenstein,” “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and, er, “Slaughterhouse-Five.”

As good as Del Toro’s take on these classic tales will undoubtedly be, I’m not sure he should be bothering with such flicks. He’s an original filmmaker, with original ideas, and a vision unlike any other filmmaker out there. Remakes of “Frankenstein” and “Slaughterhouse-Five” are for filmmakers/producers that haven’t gotten a creative born in their body and/or own the rights to such properties after winning them in a poker game.

Del Toro needs to stick to original films – films like the adaptation of “Drood,” a Dan Simmons novel acquired by U that will be published in February by Little, that Del Toro will likely helm. It’s likely this’ll be the first post-“Hobbit” pic for the filmmaker.
