That’s cool! But it might take years? Really? Why?

It takes a long time to get a script to film-able quality, particularly because you need support from producers, studios, actors, etc.

I agree that it seems like a long time to wait but if that will help the movie be great then I’m all for it! ;) I agree that Emma would be great choice for the movie and having Del Toro to say that he wants her too is just another plus! :D I hope Emma will say yes to him, after all he is one of the best directors out there… ;)

Why are you all so shocked at it taking years? It takes a long time to procur a good quality script and Del Toro is a good quality director and thorough writer.
