Guillermo del Toro
Already showing interest in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows once before, Guillermo del Toro has once again surfaced to discuss why he wouldn't mind directing the film.
Guillermo Del Toro Interested in Deathly Hallows
MTVMoviesBlog caught up with Guillermo del Toro and learned that the director is still very much interested in helping close out the Potter franchise.
“I’m definitely interested,” he insisted, “now that the movies have grown darker. They have a contrast between the gloomy existence of the kid and the world he’s exposed to. They have evolved into a really nice universe.”
The deathstick, a wand of destiny which makes its bearer unbeatable. A resurrection stone which enables the one who wields it to visit with the dead. A trip to the afterlife and a final duel which makes “Return of the Jedi: look like kindergarten cops and robbers. Indeed, given all the new elements of the “Harry Potter” universe introduced in “Hallows,” there’s little doubt that it would be right in del Toro’s wheelhouse – especially after the visionary “Pan’s Labyrinth” cemented him as the master of fairy-tales that cross over from children to adults.
“I got [’Deathly Hallows’] for my daughter and she was like ‘When are you going to give it to me?’” he smiled. “I read it and I was very moved by the ending. It ends very much like a Dickens novel.”
Having loved the darkness of Pan's Labyrinth, I can't help but dig the idea of Guillermo coming aboard.
