GUILLERMO DEL TORO Working On Vampire Novel Trilogy?!

Good lord! As if Guillermo Del Toro didn’t have enough on his plate! (Read our Guillermo Del Toro booked through 2017 story HERE!) Now the filmmaker is adding a trilogy of vampire books to his forever growing "to do" list. From the imdb:

"Moviemaker Guillermo Del Toro can add novelist to his resume – he is set to release a trilogy of vampire stories. The Hellboy director will collaborate with revered crime writer Chuck Hogan on the three tales, with the first – entitled THE STRAIN – due to hit stores next summer.

Del Toro says, "The idea is epic in scope. The trilogy advances in unexpected ways and each book contains unique and surprising revelations about the history, physiology and lore of the vampiric race, tracing its roots all the way back to its Old Testament origins."

It is not known whether Del Toro plans to adapt the trilogy for the big screen. "

Del Toro of course helmed BLADE 2, this writer’s personal favorite of that series, so I’m excited at the prospect of Del Toro tackling the vampire genre again!
