|I thought this film was suppose to be on schedule to hit theaters this year.|
What's going on with it?
I thought after it was announced at some comic book convention in San Diego in 2010 that by now ... was wrapping up filming.
But I have feeling .. no filming has been done .. and in fact ... development has stalled.
Can anyone shed some light on the status of it?

|It was either last Oct or Nov where I saw his interview with MTV.com - he said that he was just wrapping up the screenplay, so I doubt filming has even begun yet.|
He was trying to collaborate with Jon Favreau because he was doing a film based on WDW or the MK or something like that (Don't quote me on that one, though LOL)

|By collaborate, I mean release dates for both his and Jon's movies.|

|If he's just wrapping up writing the screenplay .... then I wouldn't expect the film to hit theaters till 2014. We know the film will be heavy in special effects .. which take significantly longer than live-action shooting. So .. at this point .. I'm just throwing my arms and hands up, and forget about this for the next 2 years ... Because that's how long it's going to take before it's in the can, and ready for theaters!|
I feel the same about Star Trek. I was expecting the second film (with the new crew) out this year. Now it's going to be 2013, or '14.

|Odd that anyone would want to do this after the 1st Haunted Mansion film|

|I don't find it odd at all.|
The Eddie Murphy version was awful .. and universally panned.
Somebody needed to jump in ... and give audiences and fans a film worthy of the famous attraction.
I wish Sony would do that with the awful Bewitched movie they put out several years ago with Nicole Kidman. The famous, classic tv series deserves a good film, worthy of the show that ran 8 years. That film was universally panned, and hated ... and Sony's misfire should be fixed .. by creating another film - This time, done right!

|Going on to del Torres' wiki page ... and looking at confirmed projects he has for the next few years ... seems this one has been killed off! :(|
Anyone know any details .. whether it MAY happen, still?
