Guillermo Del Toro is bringing his talents to HBO, where he will develop a potential series based on Japanese Manga series “Monster,” according to Deadline.
The comic series follows a young doctor who searches the world “for the most evil sociopath that has ever lived,” a 12-year-old boy. The doctor’s decision to save the boy’s life has unwittingly “unleashed a Pandora’s Box that leaves the doc battling to stop a plot of mass genocide.”
The project was originally set to become a feature film, but the storyline proved to difficult to compact in a film.
The director’s next project, “Pacific Rim,” hit theaters on July 12.
