Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is finishing up the rounds for his latest film, The Shape of Water. While del Toro is planning on taking a bit of a break from directing, he’s still an incredibly busy man, and is still set to direct Fantastic Voyage once his directing hiatus is over.
Even though the film has been pushed back quite a bit, it turns out he still fully plans to helm the project. Speaking with Collider, he revealed when, saying:
“That was on the calendar already. I announced the year in September, and if everything goes well and it happens, it would happen next September. We’d start prepping again. We had already delayed it. It is a very difficult movie, technically, and I needed to figure out a bunch of stuff. We’ve been doing R&D and we’ve been building stuff. I never know whether they’re going to happen or not. I’ve learned that, in 25 years. But, we’re still working on it.”
So next fall is when we can expect him to go into full directing mode. That being said, it is expected to be a VFX-heavy project, and as such, you never know what kind of troubles they may be getting into with the flick. They could very well run into either script or production problems that could push the project back further.
Del Toro is by no means a stranger to getting his films delayed. Regardless, we are looking forward to seeing what he can bring to Fantastic Voyage.
