If you think Disney is only producing remakes of their old animated movies these days, you're totally wrong — they're also remaking old live-action movies!!
It's been reported that Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in a reimagining of The Haunted Mansion, based on the acclaimed Disney theme park ride — which was previously made into a not-so-acclaimed movie starring Eddie Murphy!
The Drive actor would be joining director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim), who has been developing the project with the studio since 2010.

The pair would make a great team, as they are both proven Disney fanatics — Del Toro even has a room dedicated to the Haunted Mansion in his home filled with secret bookcases and artwork from the original ride!
As of now, plot details for the film being kept in the attic, but the studio is describing it as a supernatural family adventure.
If the director has really been developing this concept with the studio for five years, we can hopefully expect something hauntingly exceptional!
Will YOU be seeing the remake of Haunted Mansion when it hits theaters?
