PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming is set to begin August 20th in Toronto, Canada. (5/29/18)
  • Norwegian director Andre Ovredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe) is set to direct.
  • Guillermo del Toro originally intended to direct the film, but due to his busy schedule will simply produce instead.
  • Dan and Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie, Hotel Transylvania) have been recently hired to work on the script. Producer Guillermo del Toro (who also worked with them on another project) had this to say about the brothers: "I have had such a great time working with the Hagemans on Trollhunters -- and they have proven to be such brilliant writers -- that the fit for this material was just perfect: they grew up with the books, they love the genre and they are smart and emotional when writing characters." (2/25/16)
  • Scripted by John August (Big Fish, Frankenweenie, GO).
  • At one point Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Feast, The Collector, Saw 4 to 7) were hired to script the project.
  • Apparently some of the stories in the book will be featured in the film.
  • Based on the Alvin Schwartz children's book series with the same name, which is based on folklore and urban legends.
