Del Toro will develop a film called Book Of Life, which is based on the Mexican celebration Day of the Dead. The film was originally titled just that, but Pixar has a film in development with a similar setting called the exact same thing. The film is scheduled to be released on 10th October, 2014 and will be directed by Mexican animator, Jorge R. Gutierrez. Guillermo Del Toro is currently in post-production on his next film Pacific Rim.
