Even with "Pacific Rim 2" and "Crimson Peak" on the way, Guillermo del Toro is barreling ahead. As busy as he is with movies, the filmmaker has always been involved in other mediums, and this week brought updates on two non-film projects.

The Book Of Life
“The Book of Life” is immersed in the enduring push and pull between "tradition" and "innovation"; more simply, it's a story about growing up, set in the backdrop of the Mexican “Day of the Dead” holiday. The animated film, directed by CalArts alum Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, just dropped its second trailer, and it looks to be a fantastic mix of surrealism and Mexican folk art.

Last we heard, actor Ron Perlman was looking to complete the “Hellboy” series as a trilogy before finally saying goodbye. “I’d like to finish it. I’d like for there to be a third film because the first two films were set up for this huge resolve and he [and director Guillermo Del Toro] already understands what that resolve will look like," the actor said a few month ago.

Pacific Rim. Guillermo del Toro
There was a moment there when Guillermo del Toro couldn't seem to get anything made. A few years back at MGM, he was trying to get "The Hobbit" moving, eventually bailing on the project, leaving it for Peter Jackson to take over and turn into a trilogy. And then there was "At The Mountains Of Madness" which Universal scuttled over its R-rating, leaving del Toro to recently announce he'd compromise and go PG-13. But at the moment, he's on a tear. His TV series "The Strain" arrives this summer, "Crimson Peak" will drop in 2015 and "Pacific Rim 2" is slated for 2017 (with the franchise also spawning an animated show). And del Toro is eager to keep up the pace.

Pacific Rim. Guillermo del Toro
Happy 4th! We’ll keep this brief because there’s #MURICA times to be had. You’ll recall that back in 2011, Guillermo del Toro announced that his long-gestating adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At The Mountains Of Madness” had been killed by Universal. The studio was apparently in love with the project, but didn’t like the financial-recouping prospect of a $120+ million movie with an R rating, so they shuttered the project.

Guillermo del Toro, Emma Watson
“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” star Emma Watson is probably feeling a lot like she looks in the above photo: annoyed with a touch of exasperated, “c’mon, really?” Because her director-to-be, Guillermo del Toro, has dropped out of helming “Beauty & The Beast.” Did the recent announcement of Disney’s live-action reimagining of the project kill it, you ask? Nope, Warner Bros. is still going ahead with the project, they’ll just have to do it with a new director.

While "Pacific Rim" did well, the take of just over $400 million worldwide isn't a slam dunk in today's studio world (which is crazy, we know). And so, that's why Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures haven't yet greenlit a sequel. But don't tell that to Guillermo del Toro. Last fall, he revealed that he and Travis Beacham had started work on the script, and that effort is continuing, although with a different writer teaming with del Toro.

The Strain
If "The Strain" can be commended for anything this summer, it will be for giving us the always excellent Corey Stoll on a weekly basis. Outside of that, it remains to be seen if Guillermo del Toro's series can not only live up to its promise, but carve out a space for itself in a television landscape overflowing with supernatural stories.
