Katie Holmes Joins Guillermo del Toro Project

This is kind of an odd combination: Katie Holmes will star in a thriller written by spooky creep-master Guillermo del Toro titled Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. The director is comic book artist Troy Nixey, whom Variety deems Del Toro's "protégé." Here's more:

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is based on a 1973 ABC telepic about a young girl who moves in with her father and his girlfriend and discovers they are sharing the house with devilish creatures.

Aside from her brief stint on Eli Stone last year and her role in the goofy 2008 comedy Mad Money, Katie Holmes hasn't done anything on the big or little screen since her 2005 roles in Thank You for Smoking and Batman Begins. She's in an upcoming movie opposite John C. Reilly and Kevin Kline titled The Extra Man, but that was about it — until now. Seems like Holmes is being particular about the roles she chooses, and I think she chose wisely with a project penned by Guillermo del Toro. What do you think about this news? Are you glad to see Katie Holmes taking more roles?

And that's very kind to say she is "particular" about the roles she chooses. LOL. (Just like she supposedly "chose" to do Mad Money instead of the Batman sequel...)

The one saving grace is that Guillermo del Toro is not the 'hands-on' person for the film--he's given his name to the project but not much of his actual time.

OH FUCK NO. WAY TO RUIN A PERFECTLY GOOD GUILLERMO PROJECT. Guillermo is way too good for you, Katie. Please vanish into the mist, never to be heard from again.

I don't know about this. Guillermo is a genius and I don't want her to ruin the possibility of this movie being great. I guess we'll have to see if she's up to it.

well katie was really well known for doing indie things that were kind of dark so this doesn't seem that far off base.

Katie, please put on your hubby's baggy jeans and take your kid to the park - or go out somewhere with Posh and Becks, but PURLEASE, save us all from your horrendous acting.
