  • Budgeting and script revisions are currently underway on "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" with pre-production likely to begin this Summer.

  • "Killing on Carnival Row" is currently undergoing script revisions. The story is a gothic fantasy romp about a hard-boiled police constable who is tracking a serial killer in a town populated by humans, fairies, vampires, and werewolves.

  • No definitive news on "At the Mountains of Madness", though Del Toro is still pursuing it.

  • del Toro recently handed in a draft of a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic "The Witches" and hopes to direct in addition to writing.
