Guillermo del Toro and Steven Thompson (writer for Doctor Who and Sherlock) are working together on an intriguing new project for HBO – a series based on an 18 volume manga tale called Monster. The books by Naoki Urasawa are about the hunt for a 12-year-old boy who also happens to be the “most evil sociopath that has ever lived.” I’m already looking forward to seeing it! Thompson will pen the pilot, and del Toro will direct. Let’s hope it’s awesome and gets picked up as a full series.
