Guillermo del Toro Will Announce Next Project at Comic-Con

June 14, 2010

Guillermo del Toro

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!

    God I love Comic Con. I always watch it every year on G4.
  • After the terrible festival in Cannes, Comic con will be very refreshing (even if I have to experience it vicariously through you, Alex).

    Hellboy 3!
  • David Banner
    1) Hellboy 3 2) At The Mountain Of Madness are my wishes, after he left The Hobbit. This Van Helsing I dont have high hopes for. "...all the projects and partnerships being considered are both quite surprising and, I hope, powerful." Hmm....Halo? :)

    *Crosses fingers for At the Mountain of Madness* (I'd be fine with a third Hellboy movie but after the last one, I'm more than a little bit concerned for any more sequels.)
  • Candy Castle
    At the Mountain of Madness!!!!

    I don't give a fuck, the guy has like 1 really great movie and few not-so-good flicks. Stop kissing his fat ass.

    dr strange or i,frankenstein.
  • Clover
    We all know he has allready cast his Frankenstein monster,( Doug Jones) so that is the obvious choice, but I still feel " The Strain" will be sooner than later. If you have not read that book, find it somewhere and check it out. He is also slated to produce Jeykll and Hyde and has ties with a Slaughterhouse 5 remake. I believe he has a 4 picture deal with Universal. He is in creature development for Mountain of Madness. Sad to lose him for the Hobbit but his future is bright for all of us who love the craft of film making.

    He should direct a ZELDA movie...
  • Eli
    Yes. a Zelda movie if anything. Who the eff cares about frankenstein anymore or in that case any of the remakes that come out of hollywood? Pan's Labrynith was an awesome movie; it was so creative. I'm glad he's off the hobbit.
  • jonny b
    bro he should make an aaahhhh! real monsters movie. hahaha remember that nickelodeon shit?
