Guillermo del Toro developing Horror film with Babadook director
The Nightingale, a period thriller set in 1825 that follows the journey of a young woman convict seeking revenge
Jennifer Kent, director of the 2014 Australian psychological horror film, The Babadook, has revealed that she and Guillermo del Toro are collaborating on a new project.
"I’m not sure I can talk about it, but it’s something scary. I really admire him and his work, and think he’s a true artist so I’m excited to know more. We’re in the early stages," said Kent.
The filmmaker is currently at Sundance Film Festival promoting her second film, The Nightingale, a period thriller set in 1825 that follows the journey of a young woman convict seeking revenge. Guillermo del Toro, whose last film, The Shape of Water, won four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director, is currently making a film based on Pinnochio for Netflix.
It remains to be seen what form their collaboration will take - a film or a series.
