El Laberinto del Fauno

In other genre-crossing news, Guillermo del Toro's next film is a horror-fantasy called Pan's Labyrinth. It's an original del Toro story about a young girl who moves with her family to a rural area in northern Spain shortly after the rise of Fascism in that country in the early '40s. The girl, unwilling to face the realities of the world she lives in, creates an imaginary world for herself and falls in love with a faun who lives in an ancient, ruined labyrinth.

Apparently it's debuting in Spain, France, and Latin America next fall, but del Toro's speculating that the US and UK will be quick to pick it up. Looks amazing, doesn't it?

I imagine so. Subtitles don't bother me, but even if they did, I think I'd brave them for this one.
