‘The Simpsons’ Gets the Del Toro Treatment

Simpsons

The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXIV Halloween Special is set to open with a Guillermo del Toro-created sequence featuring monsters and creatures from popular horror films of the past decades. This should be enough reason to park yourself in front of the TV right before the opening credits start to roll.

The Treehouse of Horror series has become an annual spookfest featuring three separate stories of horror involving the good ‘ol people of Springfield. It is often a parody (and sometimes homage) to popular shows and characters in horror, supernatural and science fiction genre.

Guillermo del Toro’s big ol’ tribute to Japan’s mecha and kaiju films Pacific Rim is one of the more divisive films released this year, possibly equaling Prometheus in the amount of praise and criticism it got (and like Prometheus, it performed a little bit below people’s expectations, especially considering that it generated a lot of buzz during the production stage.)

Del Toro brings Trollhunters, Hellboy, and more to DreamWorks

Guillermo del Toro is one of today’s more popular Director and Producers, responsible for the animated Hellboy movies and Pan’s Labyrinth, amongst others. Now, del Toro is pairing up with DreamWorks Animation to not only be the home to his new animated feature films, but to help DreamWorks with theirs! Included in the deal is del Toro’s soonest, upcoming film, the planned 3D epic Trollhunters. However, perhaps most applicable to the immediate future, del Toro will consult on Puss In Boots, the offshoot of the Shrek franchise due out November 4th 2011, Kung Fu Panda 2, and the soon-to-arrive Megamind. This type of collaboration is sure to kick the animated projects up a notch, which is all good news for us!
