Guillermo del Toro confirms that after one more revision from the still unannounced writer, they’ll be good to go. See what he has to say about the direction of the film.
Guillermo del Toro sounds positive that this movie will happen in an interview with Collider. Del Toro reveals that Dark Universe is the English language project he’s enjoyed working on most, and that when this “big” writer comes on board for one final revision, they’ll be all set.
“Justice League Dark is very active. I’m doing one more revision while we wait for the writer. It’s somebody big, [and] we’re patiently waiting for that writer. I think it’s worth it, I think it’s a guy we all admire. I’m doing my revisions on my sort of Bible, on my story for the film. I can tell you it’s the writing project I’ve enjoyed the most in English. Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth are in Spanish, but of all my writing and screenplays, this was so much fun because it was character. It was a pretty easy plot, but the character interaction, Swamp Thing with Deadman and Demon, it’s so joyful for me to write that. Constantine is such a great character, so dry. I think it could be a great movie. I don’t want to do many changes until the proper writer comes onboard.”
This is a very good sign for the movie and if there were any doubts at this moment I’d certainly set them aside for del Toro. He does seem to know what he’s doing with this adaptation. More to come of course down the road so stay tuned!
