Comic-Con, which is currently going on in San Diego, is providing lots of teasers and news about upcoming film projects. First – the news. Walt Disney Pictures announced that Guillermo del Toro has signed to co-write and produce a 3D The Haunted Mansion reboot. Del Toro stated that this version will be much more on the scary side, rather than the comedic concept of the original. Joss Whedon has confirmed that he is directing The Avengers. J.J. Abrams announced that his collaboration with Steven Spielberg, the film Super 8, will begin filming in September, but will not be in 3D. Transformers 3 is set to wrap filming soon, as it completes shooting in Chicago. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura announced plans for a G.I. Joe sequel, although no details were mentioned.

Set in the 1950s, the film follows Babydoll who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man. Currently, the film is set for a March 25, 2011 release.
