“From the macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque and classically creepy, the eight sinister tales, including two original Del Toro works, will be brought to life by a team of writers and directors chosen by the filmmaker,” reads the synopsis of the new series Cabinet of Curiosities and whose trailer of just over a minute was released this week, during Netflix's Geeked Week event.
The production is inspired by the story of the same name, released in 2013, and written by the director of the series, Mexico's Guillermo del Toro, winner of two Oscars for the film The Shape of Water.
Cabinet of Curiosities will air eight episodes, all directed by a different filmmaker. The first episode, for example, will be in charge of the director of photography, film and television, Mexico's Guillermo Navarro, who won an Oscar for Pan's Labyrinth (directed by del Toro), and who has also worked on episodes of series like Hannibal.
The other collaborators on the series will be Australia's Jennifer Kent, Italian-Canadian Panos Cosmatos, American-Canadian Vincenzo Natali, and Americans David Prior, Keith Thomas, Catherine Hardwicke, and Ana Lily Amirpour.
The team of writers will be made up by Haley Z. Boston, Regina Corrado, David S. Goyer, Lee Patterson, Aaron Stewart-Ahn and Mika Watkins, as confirmed by Deadline.
The series will be produced by Gary Ungar and Canadian J. Miles Dale, who also won an Oscar with del Toro for The Shape of Water and will serve as show runner.
The cast of the horror anthology series will include Andrew Lincoln, Crispin Glover, Essie Davis and Peter Weller. They are joined by: Eric André, Sofia Boutella, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Kate Micucci and Charlyne Yi, who will be joined by Rupert Grint, Luke Roberts, F. Murray Abraham, Glynn Turman, Ben Barnes, Elpidia Carrillo, Hannah Galway, Demetrius Grosse , David Hewlett, Tim Blake Nelson and Sebastian Roche
The collection of stories from Cabinet of Curiosities is intended to detune the traditional notions that the public has about terror, according to Netflix, the platform where Cabinet of Curiosities will be released throughout 2022, although the date has not been determined.
