What’s Guillermo Del Toro’s Mysterious New Project?!

Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here.
Earlier today, we got an e-mail from Mike, the guy who runs TheOneRing, and I assume he was all excited because he thought he was about to get some big-ass HOBBIT news to run. He said as much in this e-mail he sent out:
“The man himself, Guillermo del Toro, who may or may not be directing ‘The Hobbit’, has posted a very curious comment on our own message boards. Del Toro has mentioned recently at a New York convention that an announcement is imminent... decipher what you will from his post!”
Well, it appears he did make an announcement... only it wasn’t the one that TheOneRing was expecting.
Instead, it looks like he’s aiming at making a small film, one of his personal movie about childhood, and the description he offered up is intriguing.
According to Film Buff Online, Guillermo described it like so:
“But I’m starting to sketch one more, perhaps final, little movie about childhood and horror. It’s called Saturn And The End Of Days. It’s about a kid named Saturn watching the Rapture and the Apocalypse while on the way back and forth from the grocery store. It’s like, what would happen if the Apocalypse was viewed by you [while] doing errands. You go back and forth and nothing big happens except the entire world is being sucked into a vortex of fire.”
So SATURN AND THE END OF DAYS, eh? Count me in, man. Sounds awesome.
