It looks like the spirit world hasn't exactly replaced Middle-earth for Guillermo del Toro.

Last week, the 'Hellboy' director surprised the 6,500 attendees at San Diego Comic-Con with an announcement that he's developing a new 'Haunted Mansion' film at Disney.

Several trades quickly posted that del Toro had officially announced his next directing project, now that he's no longer involved with 'The Hobbit.'

However, del Toro has since clarified his involvement with the film with a personal letter to Latino Review, explaining that he is only producing and co-writing 'The Haunted Mansion' -- for now.
