Guillermo del Toro is known for many things like man-eating monsters, hellish monsters, and monster-fighting robots. The Mexican director has had a great success in creating movies of great creativity from Pan’s Labyrinth to Pacific Rim.

With the upcoming Star Wars movies that build upon George Lucas’s universe, all novels within the franchise are no longer canon. Perfect timing since del Toro stated that he’d like to make a mob movie about Jabba the Hutt. As we all know, Jabba is the slimy mafioso on Tatooine who froze Han in carbonite and tried to feed Luke to the Rancor. Such an interesting (not to mention menacing) character would be perfectly suited to del Toro’s specialties. Moreover, a Goodfellas-esque movie about the crime lord would be a welcome and refreshing variation on the mob/crime genre. He just needs to include lots of gore and a few Rolling Stones songs. Scorsese, De Niro and Pesci can also cameo. How do you say “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster,” in huttese?
