On top of the many films he has in development as director, brings news that Universal Pictures and del Toro Productions are developing Midnight Delivery, which will be produced by the great man himself and Gary Ungar (Gothika).

The script, by Neil Cross (who wrote the recent BBC Idris Elba vehicle, Luther) is about a man who is forced into becoming a drug mule in order to save his son’s life.

The Mexican fantasy auteur has many projects on the go at the moment, including producing duties on thriller Julia’s Eyes and directing an adaptation of the H. P. Lovecraft’s horror novel At the Mountains of Madness.
