Disney Taps Justin Simien To Direct ‘Haunted Mansion’ Remake

It doesn’t look Guillermo del Toro will get to make his Haunted Mansion movie after all.

A new report from Deadline reveals that Disney has selected Dear White People director Justin Simien to tackle their remake based on their popular horror-themed park attraction that got a feature film in 2003 starring Eddie Murphy.

This new film is said to be a different take on ghoulish source material and has Ghostbusters: Answer The Call screenwriter Katie Dippold penning the script. The pairing of Dippold and Simien would suggest it could have a comedic leaning.
