Yes, Guillermo del Toro is working a movie called "Zanbato," for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, but it's not necessarily about a ninja-like warrior girl.
Responding via Twitter to a Collider story, the Oscar-winning director commented, "By the way, NOT a Ninja project. But... there are Ninjas in it."
Okay, that clears up everything!
Del Toro confirmed he's been working on the project for more than six years, but says we have to wait to see if that or "Pinocchio" will be his next project.
The busy director also produced the upcoming Scott Cooper horror movie "Antlers" and "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark." He also serves as an executive producer on Amazon’s upcoming series "Carnival Row," starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.
