Unfortunately I didn't get a lot of information from this one source, but I did get a heads up that the Backlot Theatre is being refurbished..
Soooo... maybe something new is coming there??
Rumor has it from this source that the Hunchback theatre is being gutted and removed...
Also a lot of other space in that region will be gone, including a lot of parking lot space that is currently not being used..
Eventually... says my source.... Backlot Tour will be removed and all of the space (think about all of that space including the small lake, residential street, AND Catastrophe Canyon) will be used for "high-end rides"...
One problem the park faces is the balance of the entire park... right now it is loaded heavily to the South East corner (Tower of Terror, and Rock N' Rollercoaster)... they want to stretch the density across the entire park...
Of course, all of that is MAJOR RUMOR... so take it with a grain of salt...
But as far as what is going on right now, my source also talked about another Stunt Show possibly making its way over to New York Street... OR perhaps a thrill ride of some nature.... one that would top Tower of Terror AND Rock n' Rollercoaster...
The second project seems to be either re-habing in some way or replacing the Backlot theater.
There is an outside chance that all three of these may sort of work out to be part of one bigger project, but it at least seems from what I am hearing from CM's (one of whom is working closely with the non-attraction addition) that all three parts will have different time tables.

There are currently construction walls around the old Hunchback Stage area and also around part of the back of New York Street and the backlot. While much of this work is rehab work on the facades, it is being speculated that preparation for the Motor Stunt Show is underway.
While the Stunt Show is definitely under serious consideration by Disney, please note that it has not be given the definite go ahead.

Screamscape is notorious for rumors that never turn into anything but thought I'd mention it :?
From a better source....
January seems to be a key month.. sounds like a lot of stuff is going to be moved by then, or during then... say goodbye to residential street and the "mini-boneyard."
So... it does sound like the car stunt show is going to be the new show, with a brand new arena somewhere around New York Street and Residential Street...
