guillermo-del-toroGuillermo Del Toro has fans on the edge of their seats as he announces his big plans for the 2010 Comic-Con.

The most recent news for the critically acclaimed director read like this: Guillermo Del Toro no longer directing “The Hobbit”. That news struck fans with utter disappointment as everyone thought Del Toro and ‘The Hobbit’ was a duo of perfection.

After walking off the set due to issues with the time-frame of the movie and location, Guillermo Del Toro left everyone in the dark as to what his next project would be.

Most fans were convinced that he was going to head on over to Universal and direct a ‘Van Helsing’ project. Much like the disappointment of him walking off the set of ‘The Lord Of The Rings’ prequel ‘The Hobbit’, Del Toro quickly squashed those rumors, stating: “he is only in talks for that project.”

Saturday, on Del Toro’s website deltorofilms, Guillermo caught the attention of his fans with this statement:

“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!!”

The wait will soon be over for all of you Del Toro fans out there. Guillermo will officially announce his next project(s) at this year’s 2010 Comic-Con.

Catch Guillermo at Comic-Con, which will be held in San Diego from July 21st-25th.
