Guillermo del Toro

As has become a habit, Guillermo del Toro is adding yet another project to his to-do list.

Del Toro is now set to produce Day of the Dead, a CGI-animated feature about a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set during the Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday tracing back to the Aztecs that celebrates those who we’ve lost. It’s also said that music will play an important part in the movie, and that numerous international A-list recording artists will be brought in to perform both original songs and covers of iconic songs for the soundtrack.

The movie will be directed by Jorge R. Gutierrez, who also wrote the screenplay with Doug Langdale. Gutierrez has never directed a feature (only a short titled Carmelo), but has worked as a producer, writer, character designer, and production designer on the Nickelodeon animated series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, among some other things.

Langdale also wrote on El Tigre, and has worked on many other animated TV series such as Darkwing Duck, Earthworm Jim, The Weekenders, The Looney Tunes Show, and Kung-Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness.

Of the announcement, del Toro said:

I have admired Jorge’s work for a long time. He has a unique aesthetic and sense of humor. Day of the Dead offers a perfect opportunity for his sensibilities to shine.

This is a colorful, vibrant, vital fable that utilizes the animation medium in an incredible way. The object of the tale is not only to talk about life but to dazzle us – jolt us- into living to the fullest. To join Reel FX, Cary Granat and Jorge in this adventure is a privilege and a joy.

The movie will be the first time since 1993’s Cronos that del Toro is collaborating on a feature film set in his home country of Mexico.

The current aim is to have Day of the Dead released by fall of 2014.
