The Bull.

OK, so this at the rumour stage at the moment, but Guillermo Del Toro directing The Hobbit is about the only good thing that could come out of Peter Jackson not directing The Hobbit.

In no particular order, some reasons why Guillermo Del Toro is fucking great:
  • He can work with Wesley Snipes and still come out smelling of roses.

  • He's made two of the least sucky superhero movies to date.

  • He fills his movies with gigantic clockwork howdads - for no particular reason I can discern.

  • He's obsessed with using the same pallette Goya used in his 'crazed and yelling' days.

  • His name translates as 'William The Bull'. William the fucking Bull! It's the best name ever!
