Guillermo del Toro Performs Triple Job for Champions


Guillermo del Toro
The Mexican filmmaker is reported to handle the writing, directing, and producing tasks in the project.


Though currently busy filming "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army", Guillermo del Toro apparently is still able to lay eyes on another film project. According to Variety, the Mexican filmmaker is about to write, direct, and produce "Champions", a sci-fi action feature from United Artists.

Project, a big screen version of the 1968-69 British TV series of the same name, thereby will mark a departure for del Toro, who is known for his work in comic-book adaptations such as "Hellboy" and "Blade II" or horror fare "The Devil's Backbone" and fantasies like "Pan's Labyrinth."

Meanwhile, story centers on a team of secret government agents who are rescued from a plane crash by an advanced civilization and given superhuman abilities. Rights to make the flick was optioned by UA from Granada Intl., which owns the ITC library, where the original series came from.
