We have seen a lot of projects being adapted for the big screen, based on novels, comic books, fairly tales, video games, and many, many other things along the way. However, there have not been many movies over the years that have been based on theme park attractions, which is what makes The Haunted Mansion movie project so interesting to us.
The Haunted Mansion is a Disneyland attraction and a movie adaptation of the ride has been in development for many years now, first being spoken about at comic-con about five years ago. Guillermo del Toro has been eager to get The Haunted Mansion movie off the ground and now it looks like he might finally be moving the project in the right direction.
Back in February, Guillermo del Toro was seen enjoy The Haunted Mansion attraction in Disneyland with Ryan Gosling and it seems that the two of them may well have been doing a little bit of research while they were there. It has now been claimed that Guillermo has been talking to Ryan about the possibility of starring in The Haunted Mansion movie.
The Haunted Mansion movie will be a dark take on the Disneyland attraction and the screenplay for the project is currently being worked on by D.V. DeVincentis and, if casting is now taking place, we could finally see it go into production within the next year or so. A release date has not yet been determined but we will keep you posted.
Would you like to see Ryan Gosling starring in the Guillermo del Toro movie adaptation of The Haunted Mansion?
