His pet project is adapting Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Literature/AtTheMountainsOfMadness'' for the big screen. Despite backing from Creator/JamesCameron and tentative agreement by TomCruise to star, the project was [[ExecutiveMeddling cancelled by Universal]]: partly because they thought it unlikely for a CosmicHorrorStory film to make money at the box office, and partly because del Toro refused to [[{{Bowdlerise}} tone down some of its elements so that it would likely be rated PG-13]] (his proposed script would definitely catch an R). He has also adamantly refused to include a TokenRomance. He made attempts to find financing with 20th Century Fox, but more recently stated that he wished to put the project on hold due to its similarity to Creator/{{Ridley Scott}}'s ''Film/{{Prometheus}}''. The latest news concerning the project seems to indicate that Legendary is open to funding the film and he has compromised on his desire for an R-rating, but he will likely not begin production until after ''Crimson Peak'' and the ''Pacific Rim'' sequel have been released.

Del Toro is notoriously known for turning down high-budgeted SummerBlockbuster movies to work on smaller, independent projects. So far he has rejected offers to direct ''Film/IAmLegend''; ''Film/OneMissedCall''; ''Film/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe''; ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', and even ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince''. He did, however, accept an offer to work on the ''Film/TheHobbit'' film series, but ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''-helmer Creator/PeterJackson wound up taking over the director's spot, with del Toro staying on as a writer.

writer. Another famed characteristic of Del Toro is [[AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder being attached to so many things]] that [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillermo_del_Toro#Future_projects his "future projects"]] are very different than [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillermo_del_Toro_filmography what actually comes out]].
