Guillermo Del Toro Developing Naoki Urasawa Serial Killer Manga Epic MONSTER For HBO!!
Serial killers are the new vampires.
A Manga series that’s already been adapted into a 74-episode animated TV series, Naoki Urasawa’s “Monster” is now being developed by Guillermo Del Toro for HBO.
The books follow a doctor determined to neutralize a serial killer the doctor saved when the killer was a nine-year-old.
The project had been in development at HBO’s sister studio New Line. Del Toro (“Hellboy,” “Pacific Rim”) hopes to direct the pilot from a script by Steven Thompson (“Doctor Who,” “Sherlock”).
FX greenlit in September a pilot based on Del Toro’s “The Strain” vampire novels. Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Hotel”) will serve as showrunner should “Strain” go to series.

The Blu-ray second season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” $114.99 in September and $73.90 last week, has fallen (this week only) to its lowest price ever: $52.49!! (60% Off!!) Cheaper Than Used!!
