YAGDTT (Yet Another Guillermo Del Toro Thread): Heaven Sent

Could Guillermo del Toro Develop HEAVEN SENT and Bring the DC Comics Characters Swamp Thing, Deadman, Etrigan the Demon and More to the Screen?


In the craziest news since Disney bought Star Wars, thereís a rumor on a new project being conceived by director Guillermo del Toro, one that will bring together some of DC Comics most supernatural heroes. Titled Heaven Sent, del Toro is reportedly bringing together a slew of magical DC characters, including Swamp Thing, Deadman, Constantine Hellblazer and Etrigan the Demon. Details are non-existent beyond this being an interest of del Toroís at the moment, but at least itís something for fans to look forward to. Hit the jump to see what other characters might appear in Heaven Sent, along with reactions to del Toroís Pacific Rim and the chances for a sequel.
Hereís what Latino Review had to report on Heaven Sent:

Speaking of Guillermo del Toro letís just say he is working on a movie that has the potential to be the greatest movie ever committed to film. Or bytes. I hear that his next epic, PACIFIC RIM ( a Japanese Porno) is testing so well that Warner Brothers wants to offer him everything they have. Fortunately he passed on the feature version of V and the sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but he does want to do his own version of the Avengers, just supernaturally. Called HEAVEN SENT he is combining all the magical beings from DC Comics in one epic adventure. Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine Hellblazer, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, and Sargon as well as Etrigan the Demon will team up to no doubt save us from the Stay Puft Marshmallow man. Now this one is a ways away, but Warnerís lawyers have been working every night trying to clear the rights to all these characters.
The fact that Pacific Rim is testing well is a good sign for a number of reasons. First, it bodes well for a potential sequel to the film if itís a box office success. Second, it allows del Toro more creative freedom going forward, which heíll need for Heaven Sent. Third, it will hopefully encourage other filmmakers to broaden their creative ambitions so we can get more craziness like Pacific Rim and Heaven Sent.

The report also mentions the progress of another del Toro project, Crimson Peak, which is a haunted house film based off of his original script now set up at Universal, though he will only be producing the picture. Be sure to check out the full report at Latino Review.
GDT's plate is so full that I doubt this'll ever happen. But it'd be awesome if it did.

Hope it happens, but doubt it ever will.

I just noticed that the article I quoted refers to Pacific Rim as "a Japanese Porno".

But will there be tentacle rape? It can't be a proper Japanese porno without tentacle rape.

I'd actually like to see him make a standalone Swamp Thing film.

The only projects that I know of GDT directing after Pacific Rim are the pilot for The Strain and his co-directing on Pinocchio. He's producing way more than that, though. In fact, I thought he was actually directing Crimson Peak.
