Guillermo del Toro Adds Puss in Boots Cameo


While he’s been in the news this week for the announcement that he’ll next be directing Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro is set to hit theater screens a little bit sooner, albeit in an entirely different capacity.’s Edward Douglas has just checked in from a DreamWorks Animation event in New York City and has revealed that Del Toro, who is executive producing the film, will have a cameo in Puss In Boots.

The film, a spinoff of the successful Shrek franchise, stars Antonio Banderas as the title character, with a supporting cast that features Salma Hayek, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris. Add to that Del Toro in the role of the Commandante, a character about whom we hope to have more details soon.

The film, a prequel to the events of Shrek 2, features the legendary Puss In Boots embarking on a heroic journey, teaming up with mastermind Humpty Dumpty and the street-savvy Kitty Softpaws to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.

Puss in Boots will hit theaters in 2D and 3D on November 4th.
