Guillermo Del Toro Adapting The Strain for TV
Director Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) is adapting his The Strain Trilogy for a TV series with FX. He co-wrote The Strain, The Fall and The Night Eternal with Chuck Hogan, and they will work together again to write the pilot. Del Toro will direct and executive produce the pilot episode, with Carlton Cuse (Lost) set to be showrunner.
