New Haunted Mansion Movie In Development

Disney is developing a new Haunted Mansion movie. The studio previously turned the ride into a movie in 2003 with a feature starring Eddie Murphy.

Katie Dippold is writing a feature based on the popular ride.


As reported by THR – Rideback, the production company by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich and was behind Disney’s billion dollar-grossing Aladdin remake, is producing what is intended to be a live-action movie.

The Haunted Mansion debuted in 1969 and was an immediate success. The premise sees theme park guests go inside a spooky and creepy manor that has a wide array of supernatural frights. It also featured a graveyard’s worth of characters, ranging from the spirit of psychic medium Madame Leota to the skeletal Bride to the cloaked Hatbox Ghost.

Disney previously adapted the ride into a 2003 movie directed by Rob Minkoff and starring Eddie Murphy. The project took a broad approach to the material.

The studio since has tried to reimagine the feature adaptation with Guillermo del Toro serving as co-writer and producer.
