  • Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro shared a list of
    movies on Twitter Monday that he’d written or developed that
    never got made.
  • The list includes “Justice League Dark,” “Beauty and the
    Beast,” and “Pacific Rim 2.”
  • Del Toro said he lost more than a decade of work on the
    projects.

 

“Justice League” fans could start asking for the “Guillermo del
Toro cut” soon.

The Oscar-winning director of “The Shape of Water” shared
a list of movies on Twitter
Monday that he had written, co-written, or developed that had yet
to be produced. The list included “Justice League Dark,” a
“Beauty and the Beast” movie, and a “Pacific Rim” sequel that he
said was “very different” than the one that came to theaters this
year, “Pacific Rim Uprising.”

“The thing is- each script takes about a year, so- more
than a decade of work lost,” del Toro tweeted.

In the comics, “Justice League Dark” is a team that takes on
supernatural enemies and is comprised of magic-based characters
like Etrigan the Demon and Swamp Thing. It’s far from the super
team that audiences saw in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” movie
last year.

The movie has been long in development, and del Toro was attached
to write and direct in 2013. Last year he recalled that he was “mighty proud”
of the script, but in 2015, he told The Daily Beast that he left
the project to focus on “Pacific Rim 2.”

“Warners liked the script, they were very enthusiastic and
wanted to green-light it but they wanted it to coincide with the
shoot of ‘
Pacific Rim 2,'” he said. “I was put
in a very difficult place facing a difficult choice, and I chose
to do ‘
Pacific Rim 2.'”

Unfortunately, neither project saw the light of day.

Del Toro was also attached to Disney’s “Beauty and the
Beast” remake starring Emma Watson before he dropped out in 2014. The
movie went on to gross over $1 billion worldwide last year, but
del Toro’s script was not used.

Del Toro’s next project is on track, however, as he
will write and direct a stop-motion
“Pinocchio”
movie for Netflix.

Below is every movie on del Toro’s list of unfinished
projects:

  • “The Witches”
  • “Justice League Dark”
  • “Beauty and the Beast”
  • “At the Mountains of Madness”
  • “Fantastic Voyage”
  • “The Count of Monte Cristo”
  • “Mephisto’s Bridge”
  • “Pacific Rim 2” 
  • “Secret Project (Untitled)”
  • “Superstitious”
  • “Nightmare Alley”
  • “Haunted Mansion”
