Del Toro: If I Do Another Game, "World War III Will Start"

Noted film director Guillermo del Toro thinks he's cursed.

His ambitious inSane trilogy never really got off the ground and then, things sadly fizzled with Hideo Kojima and Silent Hills.

So now, when asked about his next foray into video games, the "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Hellboy" director says he just can't do it. As per a recent ShackNews interview:

"I have proven to be the albatross of video games. I joined THQ, and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else's life, I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I'll join someone and his house will explode, or something."

Del Toro added that he "learned a lot" from Kojima and THQ and the experiences "changed the way" he looks at storytelling. As for Kojima, Del Toro said "I love his work and I will continue to learn from him as a friend." However, he fears that if he joined up with another game project, "World War III will start."

Gee, that's too bad; we've scared him off. Both of his projects were immensely promising, too.

I hope he's not serious. I mean that's a pretty lame reason to quit on something.
