NYCC: Del Toro's next?

At this past weekend's New York Comic Con, I had the pleasure of seeing Guillermo Del Toro in all his blustery glory at the HELLBOY II panel (a full report on that will be up soon). In between curses and rants against studio interference, the big man let us in on a project he's cooking up - one of his self-described "little movies" ala THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE and PAN'S LABYRINTH.

It's called SATURN AND THE END OF DAYS and thankfully it doesn't sound like the Governator will be anywhere near this... What he calls his final movie about "childhood and horror", it tells the tale of the Apocalypse, as seen through the eyes of a small child going to and from the grocery store. "What would happen if the Apocalypse was viewed while you were doing errands," Del Toro pondered. "You go back and forth and nothing big happens except the entire world is being sucked into a vortex of fire."

Del Toro also mentioned that he still wants to do H.P. Lovecraft's AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, but is still waiting to find financing for the complicated project... Finally, he mentioned that we should hear a definitive announcement about THE HOBBIT and whether or not he's on board within the next couple days.
