The letter below from Sandy Collora was posted at CapedWonder.com, the same site that had first crack at Sandy’s Superman/Batman World’s Finest trailer.
Apparantly Sandy Collora and Guillermo Del Toro are collaborating on an upcoming film, and Sandy may well be directing it! (Fanboys everywhere, rejoice!)
Jim asked me to write a little something for the site in light of the overwhelming response the World?s Finest trailer has gotten over this past weekend.
Firstly, Jim has told me he?s been absolutely pelted with emails from fans asking when the movie is coming out? Well? Unfortunately, it?s not? Not that particular movie anyway. That?s because there really is no movie to speak of. I only had a very limited amount of time and money, and just wanted to give you all a little taste of what a WF movie might look and feel like? A little window if you will, into the DC Universe. I simply do not have the resources, or the finances, to do even a 20 minute short film of the quality that I did the trailer. Shooting on 35mm film with the crew I?m fortunate enough to have is incredibly expensive and somewhat time-consuming.
What I can tell you is that you will be seeing a feature film from me very soon. ?Hellboy? and ?Blade 2? director Guillermo Del Toro and I are currently working together on something that, with any luck, very well might be my feature film directing debut. Along with ?Hellboy? and ?Tomb Raider? producers, Lloyd Levin and Larry Gordon, we?re developing a great script with writer David Leslie Johnson that will hopefully get set up sometime later this year. [emphasis added]
Secondly, I wanted to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me by watching my films, and for all the encouraging emails and letters. The producers and myself are so very grateful to all of you for making ?Dead End?, and now ?World?s Finest?, so successful. I feel so blessed to not only have such a talented group of people behind me, but an overwhelmingly supportive and loyal fan base.
I?d also like to thank Jim for being so kind to not only host the film, but the absolutely gargantuan photo gallery that is in the works as well? His patience and understanding, not to mention his dedication to the boy in blue, are without measure.
It?s been a great year, and from the looks of it, it?s only going to get better? Stay tuned!
