Bayona is a Hater

We broke the story that Guillermo Del Toro would be bringing the novel HATER to the screen back in May, and today we have a director on board. That dude is Juan Antonio Bayona (THE ORPHANAGE) and the book revolves around a worldwide epidemic of violence perpetrated by otherwise ordinary people.

On a somewhat related note: I have this daydream where one day on the backlot of some studio Spielberg is chilling with Shia LaBeouf and Harrison Ford, and then Judd Apatow rolls up with his boys to kick their ass but then Del Toro shows up with Alfonso Cuaron and this Bayona dude, like 'Como estas, bitches!' And then Luc Besson and Louis Leterrier and the French posse turn up like 'Quesque sup, mon freres?' And then they got into a massive international brawl like in ANCHORMAN.
Extra Tidbit: THE ORPHANAGE made some $76 million worldwide.

JAMES!!!

Sell a script of that as soon as possible! That's an awesome freakin' dream!

Can't really comment on the directing choice as I unfortunately missed "The Orphanage" and haven't caught up with it yet. But still glad this project is moving forward, since it sounds like a unique story.

This sounds good to me. I thought that The Orphanage was an excellent film. It was suspenseful and dark without using all the corny scary movie "tricks."

I'm not sure about the movie

The second paragraph from the article was very creative though.
