Guillermo del Toro has said he regrets not directing "The Dark Universe".
Universal Pictures had recently launched the "Dark Universe", which would bring back the classic Universal Monsters in a shared cinematic world.
The studio had shared the first look photo of the Dark Universe stars, which includes the likes of Johnny Depp (The Invisible Man), Tom Cruise (Nick Morton), Russell Crowe (Dr. Jekyll) and Sofia Boutella (The Mummy).
"I've said no to things that are enormous and I've never looked back. The only time that I repent I didn't do something was in 2007, when Universal in an incredibly gentle and beautiful manner said 'do you want to take over the Monster Universe?'" Del Toro told New York Times.
"And they gave me the reins of several properties, and I didn't do it. That I repent. So this is a confessional moment, I repent. That's the only thing," he added.
