Fox Animation Studios is joining producer Guillermo del Toro and Reel FX to work on the adventure movie Book of Life, to be released on October 10, 2014.
The movie was originally named Day of the Dead after the Mexican holiday. However, Pixar is working on a film by that title.
Mexican animator-director Jorge R. Guiterrez is directing Book of Life. He and Reel FX approached del Toro with the project.
Guiterrez’s works include Nickelodeon’s award-winning animated TV series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera.
Del Toro and Fox are not revealing the exact storyline of Book of Life.
