Guillermo del Toro says he may have found a new developer for Insane

Guillermo del Toro, writer and director of such films as Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth, revealed in an interview with IGN that he may have found a developer for his recently cancelled video game, Insane.

"We were going to go to a lot of developers after THQ, but it seems like we're going to be developing it after the first meeting we had," he said.

Del Toro wasn't specific about what studio may resume development on Insane, saying only that he "can't disclose where it was, but we went to a great developer on the first meeting, and it seems that they're picking it up because they love the package."

"We were going to go to a lot of developers after THQ..."

In August, THQ president Jason Rubin announced that the company had halted production on Insane and "returned all of our IP rights to Guillermo del Toro." In the wake of cancellation, del Toro said that he was speaking with developers about reviving the project. In October, he mentioned Valve as his dream studio of choice.

"I really am a big fan of [Valve's] games," he said in an interview with Kotaku. "Portal and Left 4 Dead have been instrumental family experiences at my house."
