“I started working on THE SHAPE OF WATER right around the time we moved to Toronto for PACIFIC RIM. Working with Fox Searchlight and being supported by this beautiful group of actors and artists, I feel extremely blessed and brave,” says writer/director del Toro.

“It feels like we have an embarrassment of riches on this film. An ensemble of incredible actors who are working at the very top of their craft, a wildly original story from Guillermo’s one-of-a-kind mind, and the brilliant team at Fox Searchlight to shepherd us along. We’re all very excited to see how far we can take it,” says producer Dale.

“We are thrilled to be working with Guillermo del Toro as he is the ultimate visionary director. He has brought together an amazingly talented cast to bring this brilliant and unique story to life,” said Utley and Gilula.
