Del Toro Mentors the Director of Mama: Watch the Film

Guillermo del Toro is in talks to produce and mentor commercial director Andres Muschietti s horror film Mama for Universal, according to RiskyBiz. The movie will be based on their acclaimed Spanish-language short film Mama, which traveled the European festival circuit last year. The short film told the story of Victoria and Lily, two girls who are go on the run from a ghostly woman in a Gothic home. 3

Guillermo del Toro may be producing another English language adaptation of a foreign film with the original creators, something that is fast becoming a trend in Hollywood and a particular trademark of del Toro. The film is the adaptation of a Spanish short called Mama, a horror film that has a plot line that is being kept secret for now, although some details are already out about it. Mama will follow two girls in a Gothic house who are trying to escape from a ghostly woman who appears to be their mother. Other than that little piece from the Variety Risky Business blog through AICN, there's not much more to be heard. 2

The short Spanish-language film, Mama, is a ghost story about two girls whose mother has "come back" from who knows where. 1
