Zanbato (W/D: Guillermo del Toro, EP: J.J. Abrams)

Guillermo del Toro has been laying low since winning two Oscars for The Shape of Water but he continues to develop projects for the big screen while he preps Pinocchio for Netflix. To that end, he has signed on to write and direct Zanbato for Paramount and J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot, Collider has exclusively learned.

Plot details remain under wraps, but sources say that Zanbato centers around a young girl (between 10-15) with lethal fighting skills — think Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass or the title character in Alita: Battle Angel. Our sources initially described the character as a “ninja,” but del Toro himself took to Twitter to clarify that the protagonist is not a ninja. It’s an idea he’s been working on for years though it has never come to light until now.

Zanbato is one of many projects del Toro is developing, but regardless of when it goes before cameras, the idea of two industry titans like del Toro and Abrams teaming up on a fun genre movie has to be exciting to film fans of all stripes.
