Guillermo del Toro's Animated Day of the Dead is Now Book of Life

December 12, 2012


First announced back in February, the animated, Guillermo del Toro-produced Day of the Dead project is now titled Book of Life and set for release on October 10, 2014. What's more, Fox Animation is now involved in its production, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Emmy Award winner Jorge R. Gutierrez (El Tigre, The Adventures of Manny Rivera) will direct the film which he wrote alongside Doug Langdale.

The film was previously described as being an action-packed, fully CG-animated picture, with a “Romeo and Juliet” style love story set against a Mexican "Day of the Dead" backdrop. It represents the first time in almost twenty years -- since 1993's Cronos -- that del Toro has collaborated on a feature project set in Mexico. Music is also integral to the story; the film will feature an international roster of A-list recording artists performing new songs as well as re-imagined iconic songs.
