Disney is hoping to capitalize on one of their most beloved rides by making the Haunted Mansion into a feature film…again. Back in 2003, Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Tilly starred in the horror-comedy The Haunted Mansion, and while that movie did fairly well at the box office, it garnered mixed reviews from Disney buffs. The mega-corporation is hoping to wow fans with an updated adaptation, this time with two new stars leading the pack.
According to Deadline, Tiffany Haddish and Lakeith Stanfield are “in talks” to star in the Haunted Mansion-themed film with Justin Simien acting as director. Two producers from the Will Smith-led Aladdin live-action flick are said to be involved, as well.
