Guillermo del Toro Will Announce Next Project at Comic-Con

So that rumor from last week that director Guillermo del Toro was producing another Van Helsing movie stirred up some interesting news. On del Toro's official website, Del Toro Films (via SlashFilm), the director emailed in an official on-the-record statement about that Helsing rumor and what he does have coming up. "Van Helsing (writing and producing) is still in talks and not quite certain. Even then, I would like to share my plans only at COMICON." So although that Van Helsing news was just a bit premature, we will find out more at the San Diego Comic-Con in late July. Ooooh, now I'm really starting to get excited for Comic-Con!
"I am taking it slowly and marking very, very carefully the calendar of projects that I will be involved as producer, writer, etc I will not announce the project I intend to direct until then. I am very happy to say that all the projects and partnerships being considered are both quite surprising and, I hope, powerful. Much as I want, I cannot say much more at this time but I anxiously await to share these with you. I will be shopping on the floor in San Diego for several days. See you there!!"
That's the rest of what Guillermo said in the official statement. I definitely will see him there! Guillermo's got a lot on his plate lined up that we've heard about over the last few years, but his mention that what he's considering is "quite surprising" throws me off. I wonder what it is? I also hope that Peter Jackson shows up with Guillermo to both talk about their projects and reveal news on The Hobbit and everything. That would definitely give fans exactly what they want, but who knows if there will be any Hobbit updates by then. Until Comic-Con, take any Guillermo del Toro project news you hear with a grain of salt. See you in San Diego!
