    This one I think seems very likely to happen as he has recently built a very strong relationship with Legendary and has spoken about wanting to do a far smaller film than Pacific Rim before ever considering going back for a second Pacific Rim. From what I've heard Legendary and WB love the way that film is coming out so they'll surely want him back on that in a few years and WB's been trying to float some other stuff his way. They'll want to maintain that relationship and if they can keep his interest by fronting the bill for a smaller film from him, which will likely turn at least a little profit, it seems likely that they'd do so. Much can change by 2014 though.

    I wonder if he'll incorporate any of his haunted mansion ideas into this, or is that still happening?

    Sounds awesome. But until cameras are rolling, I'm not buying it.

    Now I have to see 'The Innocents' because of Del Toro.

    By the way, I urge you all to watch 'The Haunting' by Robert Wise. Not the stupid remake but the original. It's timeless as hell!

    Del Toro starts a lot of projects that don't come to fruition.

    Insane. Haunted Mansion. He jumped off the Hobbit. Mountains of Madness didn't get the greenlight.

    Quite frankly I almost sort of believe that Pacific Rim getting made at all is some sort of illusion we are being punked with.

    As he says, he keeps a lot of things in the air so that he will always end up doing something. The Hobbit though took him away from many projects for a long time.

    Yeah, I think this might be legit and he'll work on it. In fact, I think Legendary and WB wants to keep Del Toro so they'll probably fast track this film, and if Pac Rim does well, it's another incentive to keep Del Toro.

    Atmom had Tom cruise And James Cameron producing, it's been scientifically proven that the universe hates guillermo del toro for some strange reason.

    GDT filming a haunted house movie has my attention. Yeah, actors being cast makes me think this really will be his next movie, and it being a haunted house movie directed by him sounds great. Can't wait to hear more.

    I really hope there's some kind of character that would've been played by Vincent Price back in the day, like a creepy old caretaker, or a mad scientist or something. Played by Christopher Walken.

    Incredibly interesting and great cast so far. Chastain, Cumberbatch and Stone in a haunted house? Love it!

    Eh, he's got multiple cast members in place, I think GDT might actually be serious about this one...

    This is very much a matter of WB flipping the bill to keep GDT in house.
