Guillermo del Toro has inked a deal with DreamWorks for his first animated film: Trollhunters. Based on a children's book authored by del Toro himself, the story will be geared toward kids (duh) and will focus on…wait for it…trolls!
"I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary," he tells the Heat Vision Blog. "It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be a kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it's thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
No word yet on whether these trolls will deny the holocaust and claim Obama is a secret Muslim Homojew, or if they'll just stick to living under bridges and eating bones. (Heat Vision via Empire)
