Del Toro about to announce game deal

Hellboy helmer directly involved.

Film director Guillermo del Toro has said that he is on the verge of announcing a deal to make videogames.

Describing himself as a "huge" fan of games, del Toro told MTV that he would work on "games that are going to be technically and narratively very interesting".

It's "a big deal with a big company", apparently, and it's not a licensing arrangement. "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."

He couldn't offer any other details for the time being.

Mexico-born director del Toro is widely known for his work on Blade II, Hellboy and the awesome Pan's Labyrinth.

He had been lined up to direct films based on The Hobbit, but that fell through due to MGM's financial problems, although he remains involved with the scripts.

At Comic-Con this month del Toro said he would co-write, produce and probably direct a 3D reboot of Disney's The Haunted Mansion.
