Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth continues to turn heads as it gets picked up by Picturehouse for a hefty price tag (for this type of film).

Picturehouse Brings Pan's Labyrinth to North America

According to Variety, Picturehouse has paid close to $6 million for North American rights of the demented-looking film Pan's Labyrinth from director Guillermo del Toro.

Panīs labyrinth is the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944. After Francoīs victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.

The film is a mixture of genres including horror, thriller and hard fantasy.

Picturehouse's Bob Berney shows extreme optimism for the film and claims, 'Guillermo has crafted a poetic film that combines several genres: horror, fantasy and war.'

Since the film uses stylized cinematography and consists of a mixture of genres, Picturehouse is hoping to market the film not only to the Hellboy helmer's fan base but to the arthouse, genre and Spanish-language markets.

Besides Pan's Labyrinth the biggest question for director Guillermo del Toro is whether he will go on to direct the adaptation to the best-selling Xbox videogame Halo or if he will re-team with actor Ron Perlman to create a sequel to the comicbook series Hellboy.

Pan's Labyrinth is currently set for a limited release October 2006.
