The Hollywood Reporter reports that Mexican director Guillermo del Toro will be producing ‘Day of the Dead,’ a CG-animated movie. Del Toro will also present the film, which is being directed and co-written by Jorge R. Gutierrez (the co-creator of a Nickelodeon show named El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera) and is being eyed for a fall 2014 release.
‘Day of the Dead’ is described as a Romeo and Juliet-style love story set against the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead.
Music will play a key part in the movie and producers are hoping to snag an international who’s who for the soundtrack.
Reel FX who is also producing, is currently working on an animated feature adaptation of the Dark Horse graphic novel Beasts Of Burden.
