Guillermo del Toro took to Twitter to announce that he’s starting work on developing Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark into a feature film. When you take the creepy, freaky scariness of Scary Stories and add in del Toro’s incredibly creative, uniquely-equipped-for-horror eye, you’re going to get a movie that is sure to last in viewers’ memories and nightmares.
Many people, including myself, have fond memories of reading Scary Stories under a blanket with a flashlight as a kid. What was perhaps the most scariest thing about the book were the incredibly haunting drawings that accompanied each story.
Given del Toro’s incredible visual style, it’s only right that he be the person to take on this project.
We are so excited right now it’s ridiculous. Maybe… maybe it’s okay if Pacific Rim 2 got bumped for this?
