Guillermo Del Toro Is Going To Do Video Games

Guillermo Del Toro, the director behind Cronos and the big screen version of Hellboy, has walked from the Hobbit movie. He has plans! Video game plans.

"One of the things we're announcing in the next few weeks is a big deal with a big company," the filmmaker tells MTV. "We're going to do games that are going to be technically and narratively very interesting. It's not a development deal. We're going to do it. We're doing them. And we're going to announce it soon enough."

Del Toro would not divulge any more info, stating that said company "would probably shoot me in the head." But what kind of gaming tastes does he have?

In 2008, Del Toro told Edge, "I absolutely loved BioShock. I loved the world, the design, the lighting, the beautiful art direction and cinematography. I'm a fan of Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. I love them all. The first Silent Hill was so beautiful, almost like a Lynch, Polanski or Romero type of horror experience..."

Continuing, he said he loved "the engine of GTAIV", but confessed he was not a big fan of the game itself.

"There are only two games I consider masterpieces," Del Toro add. And they are? "Ico and Shadow of the Colossus."
