Halo del Toro Part 2

Hey guys, it's Donnie... Earlier this week rumors began to circulate that Guillermo del Tor, director of The Devil’s Backbone, Hellboy, and the upcoming Pan’s Labyrinth (which is gonna knock some people on their asses) had all but signed on the dotted line to direct the big screen adaptation of Halo. This got lots of folks (i.e. me) mucho excited.

del Toro recently set the record straight: Jackson and co. have approached him about directing Halo and he is very interested in doing it, but his main focus right now is completing Pan’s Labyrinth and getting Hellboy 2 off the ground. If the powers-that-be are willing to wait on it, he’d like to do Halo after HB2. Unfortunately, I don’t think that they’ll be willing to wait on such a major franchise for another 3-4 years, so my guess is that we’re gonna start hearing more names in connection with the project pretty soon.

That’s really kind of a shame, because I think that del Toro could very well be the guy for the job.
