Guillermo del Toro Addresses Van Helsing Rumor (Sort Of)
06.15.10 by BJSprecher
Quirky news site Pajiba's trade blog doesn't have the best track record when it comes to insider information and movie rumors, but apparently they were on to something when they recently reported that filmmaker Guillermo del Toro may be writing and producing a totally new Van Helsing movie for Universal Pictures. In a message sent to his "official" fansite, DelToroFilms, del Toro confirmed that he is in talks with Universal about the movie, but said that he would be waiting to announce his future movie plans at the San Diego Comic-Convention in July.
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. 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!!
