Guillermo del Toro Zanbato Bad Robot

Following last year's Oscar wins for The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro is currently one of the most popular filmmakers in Hollywood, and his next exciting project has been revealed.

Collider broke the news today that del Toro will be writing and directing an original film titled Zanbato for Paramount and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot!

“Plot details remain under wraps, but sources say that Zanbato centers around a young female ninja — a character who could be anywhere between 10 and 15 years old.”

Or maybe it doesn't?...

“BTW- NOT a Ninja project, but there are ninjas in it," del Toro clarified on Twitter.

Abrams will produce the film alongside Lindsey Weber.
