Guillermo del Toro decided to left "The Hobbit" but is now planning on entering the magical world of Disney by bringing "The Haunted Mansion" to the big screen! Del Toro announced his plans at Comic-Con where he exclusively revealed his project's inception to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's going to be a thrill ride for the whole family but it's definitely going to be scary," he told THR. "(Walt) Disney is one of the creators of some of the scariest images in my childhood. People forget that he not only made sweet images but also images of nightmare. We need to honor that side of the legacy."
According to the director, this will be a scary flick similar to the scary ride. So thank God it's not going to be the corny, horrible version that Eddie Murphy and company did in 2003. To read more on the story, click here.

I'm so excited for "Black Swan." First, I believe Darren Aronofsky is one of the most gifted directors working today (okay, I forgave him for "The Fountain"); second, I love the cast featuring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Vincent Cassel, and Barbara Hershey; and third, I love psychological thrillers and who best to tackle such a genre but Aronofsky.
Set in the New York ballet world, "Black Swan" will be the opening movie for the 67th Venice Film Festival. It will also screen in competition! Two years ago, Aronofsky won the Golden Lion prize at the festival with "The Wrestler." Will "Black Swan" give him another award? Stay tuned...

We all know that Pixar is good, really good right? Its dense storytelling abilities lift its products and characters from just being merely one-dimensional cartoons to living, breathing heroes and heroines we all care about!
So it's no wonder that Disney asked Pixar for help with their upcoming live-action project "The Muppets" with Jason Segel attached. According to The Hollywood Reporter, principals involved with the film flew to "Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, Calif., on Wednesday for a table read of the project with the animation powerhouse."
And this is the second time Pixar has been called by the House of Mouse for help. Pixar also helped shape reshoots for "Tron Legacy."
According to the THR article, the "Pixar Brain Trust" aka "filmmakers John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, Michael Arndt, Bob Peterson and president Ed Catmull were there for the consultations. Docter is a particularly avid Muppets fan, so he almost certainly was one of the attendees. On the Disney side, Muppets director James Bobin and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman were likely in the room along with Segel. Neither Pixar nor Disney would comment."
Let's just hope and pray that Pixar's involvement will truly help the upcoming Disney films.
