In a new interview at IGN, the Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak director talked mostly about what "might have been," but revealed he hasn't completely given up hope yet that the project might somehow come together.
The project was expected to be a partnership between del Toro and developer Hideo Kojima, but Kojima and his longtime publisher Konami had a falling out, leaving a number of projects either cancelled, in limbo or expected to be altered for publication.
"The collaboration between Kojima and myself, the meetings, and the friendship that was developing was beautiful," del Toro said, as quoted in a video below. "We had an agreement on where to go. We had an agreement on how we were going to push the new platforms. We were having a blast.”
“Norman [Reedus] was super happy, Hideo was super happy, and so was I," del Toro said. "I know there’s a petition going on the internet and it’s gathering signatures. I would add my signature to it, and hope that someone pays attention.”
“Hideo and I have been in touch," he added. "And he knows he would be the only guy I would follow to the ends of the earth on anything. I think if anything can be rescued, I will be more than happy.”
