Guillermo del Toro developing “Monster” comic-based series

PanARMENIAN.Net - Guillermo del Toro is working on a "Monster" of a project with HBO, TheWrap said.

The "Pacific Rim" director is developing a drama series with the cable network, "Monster," about a brilliant young doctor whose choice to save a dying 12 year old boy unwittingly unleashes a pandora's box that leaves him battling to stop a plot of mass genocide and clear his own name.

"Monster" is based on the manga comic series of the same name, by Naoki Urasawa. Shogakukan Inc. Publishing will serve as consulting producer on the project.

Del Toro and Steven Thompson are co-writing the story and executive producing, with Thompson writing the script. Don Murphy, Susan Montford and Gary Ungar are serving as non-writing executive producers.
