Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak is coming out later this week, so naturally the director has been doing the press rounds to promote his upcoming film. In an interview with The Guardian, Del Toro, who has worked on a number of big budget action films and franchises, such as Hellboy, Blade and Pacifim Rim, revealed that he plans to eventually retire from directing blockbusters in order to focus on smaller, independent films.
Up until last year, Del Toro was attached to direct a Justice League Dark adaptation for Warner Bros, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with the production date of the untitled Pacifim Rim sequel, which apparently hasn’t even been greenlit yet.
That’s one of the films that we know that the filmmaker was considering, but judging by his quotes above, it sounds like the director was actually offered something even bigger than that, but decided to pass due to his preference of darker heroes.
