Guillermo Del Toro inks long-term deal with Universal Pictures

Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro (the Hellboy movies) has agreed to direct four new movies and produce scores of others for Universal Pictures by 2017. The deal will come into effect in 2012, as soon as Del Toro finishes work on his two Hobbit movies for MGM and New Line Cinema.

The films Del Toro will direct are new adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case Of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde and Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five, as well as an adaptation of Dan Simmons’ upcoming Drood, a novel chronicling the last days of author Charles Dickens (Oliver Twist). Strangely, no Hellboy 3.
