DIRECTOR GUILLERMO DEL TORO GIVES TORONTO FILM CREWS A THUMBS-UP

DELTORO1Filmmaker, GUILLERMO DEL TORO, really likes us.  The “Pan’s Labyrinth” director has a long history with this city, producing several films here over several years. – including “Mimic”, “Blade It”, “Mama”, and now “Pacific Rim”.

“I love TORONTO, I love it with a passion.  I love the cinematheque, I love the bookstores, I love the restaurants, I love the people, and above everything else I love the crews.  They’re the best in the world.”

Mr. Del Toro spent a year in Pinewood Studios on the Lakeshore making “Pacific Rim” in one massive 250,000 square-foot studio and two smaller ones.  TORONTO streets stood in for HONG KONG and TOKYO.
