Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming film gets a release date

Guillermo Del Toro is a very beloved director, but he hasn’t quite transitioned into the award-winning, Oscar-worthy filmmaker yet. That could be changing later this year. His upcoming film – The Shape of Water, has just been given a very awards-friendly release date that seems to imply the studio thinks that this movie could be a contender this year.

According to the reports, Fox’s The Shape of Water will hit the screens on December 8, 2017.

Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water is an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. The cast of the movie also includes Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

We already know that that experiment is going to be a “fish man” played by Doug Jones, who has collaborated with Guillermo Del Toro frequently in the past. He is also known for playing characters, such as Abe Sapien in Hellboy.
