Guillermo del Toro can't slow down. The famed director, whose directing and producing schedule is booked well into the next decade, has signed a publishing deal with William Morrow, an imprint of the HarperCollins publishing house. Del Toro will write a triology of vampire thrillers along with author Chuck Hogan.
The Strain is the first book of the series, which will trace the roots of the vampire race back to its origins in the Old Testament. The tome is scheduled to land on shelves next summer. The book will deal with a vampiric virus that invades New York City.
As previously mentioned, Del Toro's slate is jam packed with projects, including the hotly-anticipated Hobbit films, and he continues to take on more directorial projects.
