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.
