This weekend the new horror film "Mama" opens in theaters nationwide. It's the spooky tale of a pair of young girls who are abandoned in a cabin in the woods for several years. When they are finally discovered and returned to society, to live with their kindly uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from "Game Of Thrones") and his punkish girlfriend (Jessica Chastain), something else comes along with them… a spectral figure the girls name "Mama." In other words: perfect material for producer Guillermo del Toro to shepherd to the big screen.

After a torrid few years that have stalled Guillermo del Toro’s involvement with a number of projects, we’re positively ecstatic that things are looking up for one of cinema’s most affable filmmakers. After the well-documented troubles he went through on “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and with his mooted H.P. Lovecraft adaptation “At the Mountains of Madness,” the director‘s first feature since 2008 will arrive in theatres next July (that’s “Pacific Rim” by the way), and his next few projects seem to be falling into place. Del Toro explained earlier in the week that there was still some hope for “At the Mountains of Madness,” but after he finishes up his work on a TV adaptation of “The Strain,” he’ll be getting to work on “Crimson Peak.”

While it can sometimes be hard to wade through the dozens of projects Guillermo Del Toro is writing, producing or developing, we'll make it simple: next summer comes "Pacific Rim," after which he's working on the TV adapation of his "The Strain" series and book, and after that, he's now signed up to direct the feature ghost story "Crimson Peak" for his next movie.
