Hey, a little something I found while scouring the Internet for proof that the project isn't dead yet.

Apparently, this is supposed to be an unconfirmed concept design, but it's gotta mean something, right? :)

Great! But if that's a possible design he's considering for the Hat Box ghost...it is completely missing the craziness in that character's eyes that I believe is what makes him so popular to be wanted to put in the film in the first place.

Well, it kind of does match Guillermo Del Toro's trademark character design. I should know, I saw the first Hellboy AND Pan's Labyrinth, both of which Guillermo worked on.

Yes. I wasn't saying it wasn't his design. That wasn't what I was talking about.

Well, maybe he might be even crazier looking in the final product. I only hope we hear more about this ASAP.

Looks like this movie might be delayed.

Quote:
I’m glad Del Toro plans to hit the ground running right after he’s done with Pacific Rim, especially since he hasn’t gotten a film to the big screen since 2008′s Hellboy II: The Golden Army. However, his plan for Pinocchio will delay his adaptation of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, and his adaptation of Disney’s The Haunted Mansion ride.

I only hope this doesn't cause the production to be shut down...

BUMP!

Q: Jumping into something else that came up recently, Disney has removed from their website, which has been there for a number of years, this Haunted Mansion page, which is no longer there. A lot of people are reading into this. Is there anything you want to tell people about Haunted Mansion?

Guillermo del Toro: No, there’s no news. I delivered my last draft five weeks ago. I have a meeting with them in three weeks. I know they like the screenplay. I need to meet with them in three weeks. That’s what I know. I know their reaction to the draft was good. We have a bunch of conceptualist art, but you never know, to predict anything else is hard for me to know. I should have called them and said, “Hey.” Usually, it’s very hard for me to predict what a thing like that means.

Q: It’s on the press site, I’m just telling you and everyone watching, they have a listing of all their movies, and Haunted Mansion has been there since Comic-Con when they put up their teaser thing. And recently, I guess, it’s not on the page anymore.

Guillermo del Toro: Maybe I should give them a call. [laughs]

Q: I don’t know if it’s because of any specific reason, but it still isn’t in front of cameras. You know what I mean?

Guillermo del Toro: Yeah, I still would love to make that movie. I came on board originally as a writer and producer, the decision I think they may be waiting, is for me to say I’m directing the movie. Or am I directing it next, which is too early for me to know what I’m doing next in live-action. I’m in the middle of Pacific Rim and I don’t know what I’m going to do next.

I'd actually forgotten about this film until you posted this Sotiris, it seems like forever since we last heard anything about it. I don't know how hectic his schedule is but if he's not sure what he's going to do after his current film, perhaps he can prioritise The Haunted Mansion and try and get it into production, whether he's going to direct it or not.

In all honesty, even though waiting sucks, I would rather have the time taken to make it an all out amazing film than something rushed not terribly good (ie the last Haunted Mansion film).

I would love for Phantom Manor's story to come out completely as well.....I know it supposed to be shrouded in mystery for the sake of the ride, but I would love to know all the ins and outs, and see it on the big screen!
