Guillermo del Toro is leading the project. This fact cannot leave us unfazed, as movies from this filmmaker are more than just attracting, they appear as hits and turn to be imprinted on our minds since then forever. As for The Shape of Water release date, it has been already defined. So we can relax and wait for the premiere.
The performance hired is star-studded with Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Octavia Spencer.
As another big name, Doug Jones has signed up to cooperate in production. By the way, he is a frequent member in del Toro’s works, including Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak, with him appearing in roles of rather creepy creatures.
Revealing Plot Details
In fact, nothing extensional was proposed to us earlier in 2016. What we knew was that the time of action would the period of the Cold War, 1963 specifically, and that it would be a fantasy but not a sci-fi project. Recently, when making a visit to the studio, Jones exposed some central particulars that concern the plot developed by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor.
There in the upcoming movie, Jones will play the part of the fish-like creature. Thus, the rumors circling around this theme have been confirmed. This fish man will be considered as the only one left representative of the species being referred to a natural anomaly.
Set against the background of the Cold War between the USA and Russia, when the race for space and technology got traction, the story follows the attempts of the U.S. government to make the most of the advantages of the fish-man technology to succeed in military issues and the exploration of space. One thing is obvious – they should keep this mysterious creature secret from Russia.
With all this historical and fantastical backdrop at hand, we should be prepared to follow the actual crux – the love storyline. It unfolds when the cleaning lady performed by Sally Hawkins finds the fish man and get a crush on him.
