The Haunted Mansion is an upcoming American live-action film based on The Haunted Mansion theme park ride.

It was announced on July 22, 2010, at San Diego Comic-Con International that a new film based on Disney's The Haunted Mansion was in development with Guillermo del Toro writing and producing. Del Toro saw the 2003 film with his daughters; when asked about his involvement in the new project, he said, "The thing I want to do is remake it."[1] Elaborating, he commented, "The movie I see in my head of Haunted Mansion is not, I believe, what everyone is imagining it to be. It's not just a regular world with a haunted mansion plopped in the middle. I really am thinking of a movie that has a heightened reality."[2]

Del Toro said that Hatbox Ghost would be the main haunting[2] and added, "We are not making it a comedy. We are making it scary and fun at the same time, but the scary will be scary." It is to be filmed in live-action 3D.[3]

To help make a respectful adaptation, del Toro has contacted Walt Disney World Imagineer Jason Surrell, author of The Haunted Mansion: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies, to act as a possible consultant for the film.[4] Del Toro has also announced he is aiming for a PG-13 rating for The Haunted Mansion.[5] On August 7, 2012, Del Toro mentioned in an interview with Collider that he had submitted his final draft to Disney, and that "they like the screenplay" because "their reaction to the draft was good".[6] Del Toro revealed that he will co-write the film, but won't direct it.[7]On April 9, 2015, it was reported that Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in the film and D.V. DeVincentis will work on the film's script.

In July 2014, it was announced that a separate film project, a cartoon special based on the attraction and animated by Gris Grimly, was being developed in honor of the 45th anniversary. It is to be aired on the Disney Channel and Disney XD.[8]


Del Toro and Gosling have been shown to be spending a lot time together at the Park while the film has been in development.

Doug Jones has been rumored to portray the Hatbox Ghost.
