GDT has got another project on his plate, this time with horror master Clive Barker. According to ShockTillYouDrop.com, the project is called Born and it is a psychological thriller about “an animator, and family man, whose clay creations are acting out a nightmare that comes to life.” Del Toro will co-produce, and Barker will exec-produce. Barker co-wrote the script with writer/actor Paul Kaye.
Stop motion will play a big part in the film, and it is being directed by Daniel Simpson, who created a claymation short in 1995 called “H”. Simpson will be directing Paul Bettany (“The Da Vinci Code”) and Jennifer Connelly (“Hulk”, “Dark Water”) starting this August in the UK.
