In HM movie news...
*Del Toro briefly talked about the status of the project in a recent interview with FEARnet. Quotes:
"We are finishing the deal with a new writer to do a draft on it."*According to IMDbPro, Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion will be doing the creature and makeup effects."We are doing one more revision, and we are very close to getting the movie made. I think we need a fresh point of view on the screenplay."
*I found this intriguing video the other day, described by its uploader as "Storyboards for new Haunted Mansion film." It shows how a sequence set in the ballroom would play out, accompanied by the music of Vivaldi. Not sure if it's the real deal or not (if it is, whoever put it online could get in a lot of trouble), but you never know.
