Del Toro, Kent Team For New Horror Film

Del Toro Kent Team For New Horror Film

Following her break out with “The Babadook,” filmmaker Jennifer Kent returns this year with the colonial Tasmania-set revenge thriller “The Nightingale” which has just screened at Sundance and has caused quite a stir with its shocking violence.

Kent is already looking towards the future though and, speaking with Bloody Disgusting, she confirmed that she is working on something with Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro:

“Look, we’ve got something on the boil. I’m not being secretive but I’m not sure I can talk about it. It’s something scary and I really admire him and his work. I think he’s a true artist so I’m excited to know more. We’re in [the] early stages of that.”

What form that project will take, be it for film or television, isn’t clear. Del Toro is currently working on his stop-motion “Pinocchio” film for Netflix. Kent’s “The Nightingale” will be released by IFC Films in cinemas and on VOD this year.
