Guillermo Del Potter?

01.09.2008
I canít think of a better fir than Guillermo Del Toro directing HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, and according to what he recently told MTV, if he had his way it could happen:

ďIím definitely interested,Ē he insisted, ďnow that the movies have grown darker. They have a contrast between the gloomy existence of the kid and the world heís exposed to. They have evolved into a really nice universe.Ē

I can understand why heíd want to direct this film. Itís a guaranteed cash-cow and its aesthetic sensibilities mirror his own. But wouldnít a man with a pulsing imagination have the desire to create more of his own world, rather than grabbing the reigns of already-established ones? Heís already done two HELLBOY movies, so another direct adaptation would mean less grotesqueries directly his own mind. But what am I talking about? By this logic, Peter Jackson hasnít shown us much other than sheer filmmaking prowess. What Iím saying is that after so many fantasy adaptations, PANíS LABYRINTH was refreshing because it was created especially for the cinema. Itís as if Del Toro wrote a novel for the screen, a true fairytale. But Iím ranting. This would be a great way to end an already perfectly-handled franchise, as far as talent goes. Next up for Del Toro is HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY, and the sixth Potter film drops in November

Extra Tidbit: Del Toro was considered to direct HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN.
