Disney has announced that Guillermo del Toro will co-write and produce a new film based on the Disney theme park attraction The Haunted Mansion.
“It’s going to be a thrill ride for the whole family but it’s definitely going to be scary,” he said. “(Walt) Disney is one of the creators of some of the scariest images in my childhood. People forget that he not only made sweet images but also images of nightmare. We need to honor that side of the legacy.”
Del Toro may also direct the project, which will have no connection to the 2003 family film that starred Eddie Murphy.
