And this time, it might not suck!
A few years back, the Disney company sacrificed creativity for $$$ after the popularity of the Pirates of the Caribbean flick. They rush released a slew of movies based off their most popular theme park attractions, including the Haunted Mansion.
You know you saw it and you know it sucked. It's the one with Eddie Murphy and the kids and Jennifer Tilly is in a ball and some other stupid crap happens.
Well, Disney has seen the error of their ways and following Disney’s Tron: Legacy presentation at Comic-Con today, director Guillermo del Toro popped out to announce he is be developing a NEW big screen adaptation of the Haunted Mansion. Guillermo promises that this time, the movie will actually be "scary" and says that he is not returning any of Eddie Murphy's calls to star.
As for his involvement, Guillermo has a big stake it in: co-producer, co-writer and director!
Now, we have high expectations for this, G! Don't let us down! This better be worth giving the Hobbit up for!
Are U looking forward to a new Haunted Mansion movie?
