Guillermo del Toro wants Star Wars directing role

Nov 13 2012, 10:01am CST | by

Guillermo del Toro wants to direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII' and admits he is trying not to think about the possibility of helming the forthcoming sci-fi movie just in case he doesn't get asked.

Guillermo del Toro wants to direct 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.
The 48-year-old helmer has issued a come and get me plea to Disney - who are developing a new series of the sci-fi movies after purchasing LucasFilm from George Lucas for an estimated $4 billion - but he is trying not to think about the possibility of helming the film in case he doesn't get asked.
Speaking to blog Fanhattan, he said: ''You know, I saw it on the internet, but I haven't approached them, they haven't formally approached me.
''I mean, I heard some rumblings, but to me it's really - I have so many projects to discuss or think about. [For] something that is not a possibility yet, I don't do that. You know, because I have so many things that I need to catch up with.
''If this ever becomes a reality, and there's an approach to do it, I would then think about it, but - it's like thinking if I want to date a supermodel. I don't think about these things.''
Michael Arndt has already started writing the script for 'Star Wars: Episode VII', but 'Star Trek' director J.J. Abrams will not be directing the movie after he recently ruled himself out of the job.
Carrie Fisher - who played Princess Leia in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy from 1977 to 1983 - has admitted she would like to reprise her role if asked by Disney, and Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo in the same three films, is ''open'' to returning to the franchise.

The Strain: "For Services Rendered" Review

Aug 24 2014 10:04pm CDT | Source: ign

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow. This first season of The Strain has been a herky-jerky viewing experience. The Guillermo del Toro-directed pilot had some spectacular imagery and creepy moments, but also featured the clunky dialogue and plot-convenient decision making by some characters that has dogged the series so far. That special attention to the horror aspect of the series has paid off for the most part, with the sc ...

Hideo Kojima Explains That Mysterious Number in the P.T. Demo

Aug 22 2014 11:28am CDT | Source: ign

Hideo Kojima has explained one of the P.T. demo's mysteries: the name of the fake developer initially said to be developing the game, 7780s Studio. In a Japanese language Konami video, Kojima says that the sequence "7780s" is another way of saying "Silent Hills." 7780 is the postcode of the Shizuoka region in Japan. The name translates roughly to "Quiet Hills," and the region's name has become a nickname for Silent Hill in its native country. ...

"Constantine" Could Blend With Del Toro Film?

Aug 11 2014 10:27am CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

Whilst Marvel has one grand linked universe, DC and Warner Bros. Pictures are keeping things a bit looser when it comes to adaptations of their comic titles. This is especially true of their TV properties with four DC Comics-inspired TV series screening this Fall, but only two of them ("Arrow," "The Flash") linked together and none of them tied to any of the upcoming films. Mea ...
