Guillermo del Toro Is Working On a Video-Game Trilogy


The first project Guillermo del Toro signed on to after dropping out of The Hobbit was an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, and that seemed to make sense. The second one's a bit more off-kilter: Earlier today THQ Inc. announced that they'd locked up del Toro on a mulityear contract to create a game trilogy called inSANE, which will see its debut in 2013. Del Toro says the game will "take players to a place they have never seen before, where every single action makes them question their own senses of morality and reality." Also being questioned in inSANE: the arbitrary nature of modern English's capitalization norms. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
