According to Deadline,
LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish are in talks to star in Disney’s new Haunted Mansion movie with Justin Simien directing.
Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced the live-action hit Aladdin, are producing through their Rideback banner with Nick Reynolds of Rideback exec producing. Katie Dippold penned the most recent draft.
The Haunted Mansion ride debuted in 1969 and has been a favorite of park goers ever since, appearing currently in both Disneyland and Disney World. The premise sees theme park guests go inside a spooky and creepy manor that includes some classic characters, from the spirit of psychic medium Madame Leota to the skeletal Bride and the cloaked Hatbox Ghost.
Disney previously adapted the ride into a 2003 movie directed by Rob Minkoff and starring Eddie Murphy, which was a moderate success at the box-office.
