Guillermo Del Toro To Freak Kids Out With CGI Epic ‘Day Of The Dead’

Tuesday, February 21 by
It will be whatever the opposite of 'Ratatouille' is.  

In a move that should guarantee Tim Burton loses the title of “creepiest whimsical filmmaker,” Guillermo Del Toro has just signed on to produce Day of the Dead (working title), a CGI film with a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against the colorful backdrop of Mexico‘s Day of the Dead.

In addition to computer animation, the film will feature an A-list soundtrack comprised of both new recordings and iconic cover songs to help set the mood.

Because these animated films take oh-so-much time, this guy is slated for a fall 2014 release, which should give everyone enough time to have kids so that they can be of suitable age to attend this film and get really, really scared. No word on characters or the nature of the film, but expect the Del Toro braintrust to be working overtime to confuse and bewilder us, Pan’s┬áLabyrinth-style.
