Guillermo del Toro is set to develop, write and direct Trollhunters for DreamWorks Animation. Originally set up at Disney, the project made its way to DreamWorks Animations thanks to del Toro’s cinematographer, Guillermo Navarro, who encouraged Del Toro to consider the possibilities of working with the company.

Now, Del Toro is a consultant to DreamWorks Animation, assisting with various films in development, including the upcoming MegaMind, for which he provided editing and structure assistance, giving it “a brisker rhythm.”

Trollhunters is based on a book del Toro is currently writing, aimed at young-adults. It is expected Hyperion will publish the book, which Del Toro submitted to the publisher two weeks ago.
