The Girl Next Door
Director Guillermo Del Toro Dishes on Katie Holmes
by Patricia Ramos
Oscar-nominated director Guillermo del Toro knows good talent when he sees it. And, thats one of the reasons why he cast Katie Holmes in his latest film "Dont Be Afraid of The Dark."
I loved her work, Guillermo exclusively told OK! at the "Dont Be Afraid of The Dark" press conference on Friday in San Diego, I have always liked Katies work.
The Mexican-born mastermind behind "Pans Labyrinth" and "The Orphanage" handpicked Mrs. Cruise for the leading female role on the 1970s thriller remake.
Ever since the first time I saw her in "Go," she seemed to me as if she had an big energy and a reality.
The film is based on a TV movie, which is centered on a young girl who moves in with her dad and his girlfriend, played by Katie, to realize theyre not the only occupants of the home.
Katie was very present and she brought that to this film, Guillermo revaled to OK!.
"Dont Be Afraid of The Dark," also starting Guy Pearce, is set to be released in January 2011.
