Despite failing to make an impact on the Hollywood system with “Mimic” Del Toro’s work as a director was certainly getting him noticed with his Spanish language films Cronos and The Devil’s Backbone both finding their fans including producer Peter Frankfurt and writer David S. Goyer who invited Del Toro to work on Blade 2 after Stephen Norrington turned down the opportunity to direct the sequel.
