mountIt’s about time someone got up and made a movie about The Count of Monte Cristo. Especially a “Dark Knight” inspired one done with the panache and sizzle of Guy Ritchie’s incredibly mediocre Sherlock Holmes movies. At least there’s going to be a filmmaker of serious weight and coolness doing it, right?

David Goyer!

But at least there’ll be an amazing producer, right?

The guy who did the Resident Evil movies!

But doesn’t Guillermo del Toro have a long-gestating idea for a Monte Cristo movie he’s been dying to do and he’s worked with David Goyer on the Blade films. Is this a continuation of that idea?


You guys enjoy David Goyer’s Monte Cristo movie, OK? THR has the whole story but really what more do you need to know?
