Noted film director Guillermo del Toro thinks he's cursed.

His ambitious inSane trilogy never really got off the ground and then, things sadly fizzled with Hideo Kojima and Silent Hills .

So now, when asked about his next foray into video games, the "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Hellboy" director says he just can't do it. As per a recent ShackNews interview :

"I have proven to be the albatross of video games. I joined THQ, and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else's life, I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I'll join someone and his house will explode, or something."

Del Toro added that he "learned a lot" from Kojima and THQ and the experiences "changed the way" he looks at storytelling. As for Kojima, Del Toro said "I love his work and I will continue to learn from him as a friend." However, he fears that if he joined up with another game project, "World War III will start."

Gee, that's too bad; we've scared him off. Both of his projects were immensely promising, too.

I hope he's not serious. I mean that's a pretty lame reason to quit on something.
