Guillermo Del Toro Takes Us To A 'Secret Garden'

I think that the big brown thing on that girl's head is trying to eat her

I remember The Secret Garden, mainly because we had the 1993 version on video when I was younger, and my two sisters loved to watch it.  I, being a self respecting infant boy, refused to watch much of the no-doubt-cootie-infested silliness, so it mostly remains a mystery to me.  I may end up seeing an adapted version of it now, though, because a another adaptation of the 1911 novel coming, and it's producer is none other then surreal horror master Guillermo Del Toro.

The story follows 10-year-old Mary Lenox who, while living in England with her neglectful uncle, discovers a mysterious garden that seems to heal the wounds of her crippled cousin.

This version will apparently move the setting to the American south.  It isn't quite as fairy-tale esque as it sounds (at least, not the version of it that I saw parts of), but the story has been popular for nearly a hundred years, so I imagine it's more interesting then the five-year-old me thought it was.  Especially if Del Toro sees fit to bring it to the screen.
