Move over Stephenie Meyer and Alan Ball! Guillermo del Toro could become the new vampire king…
The 48-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s television project The Strain is still alive at FX and it’s gaining traction.
During the network’s recent upfront presentation in New York, FX president John Landgraf showcased the high-profile drama pilot, which is based on del Toro’s books.
Landgraf said The Strain “will reinvent the vampire horror genre.”
The series has a full writing staff in place and they’re working on first-season scripts in anticipation of a series pickup.
The show, if it gets the green light, would air in 2014.
