Horror series won't be released till 2015 at the earliest

Film director Guillermo Del Toro’s Lovecraftian horror series InSane is back in development after being picked up by a mystery studio, according to a report.

Film website Bloody Disgusting has claimed that the horror action trilogy, dropped by embattled publisher THQ earlier this year, was signed up by the first developer the title was pitched to.

The report also said the game wouldn’t be out until 2015 at the earliest.

Del Toro said just last month he had been talking to a number of developers, having regained full ownership of the IP, and was determined to bring the project to fruition one way or another.

"When something doesn't happen in one way, then I just continue pursuing it in another way... If I own the property and I control it, which is what happened with Restraint. We pitched it at Fox and they didn't want it, we did the books and now we're on Fox. It's a full process," he said.

"I'm not giving up on Insane, it's truly beautiful, world creation, so we'll pursue it."

Del Toro previously said his dream developer for the project would be Half-Life developer Valve, as he was a huge fan of the studio.

"I'm a big fan of Valve," he said.

"Portal and Left 4 Dead have been instrumental family experiences at my house."
