After years and years of Guillermo del Toro trying to get his passion project "A Killing on Carnival Row" off the ground as a feature film, the acclaimed director decided to take it to Amazon as a TV series.
Del Toro will co-write a script along with "Pacific Rim" writer Travis Beacham. Beacham initially wrote the script as a film back in 2005, but it never managed to go anywhere.
Now The Hollywood Reporter says Amazon has ordered it as a series with del Toro on board to direct the pilot sometime this spring between his film projects.
