Guillermo del Toro to direct new ‘Haunted Mansion’

Eddie Murphy New York, July 24 (ANI): Director Guillermo del Toro has revealed that he will take on Disney’s ‘The Haunted Mansion’ as his next venture.

“Hellboy” director Del Toro also said that he will co-write and produce the film and may even direct it.

This is Disney’s second stab at the flick, which was inspired by its theme park ride.

Eddie Murphy starred in the first crack at “The Haunted Mansion” in 2003, but Toro have said that his feature won’t be anything like Murphy’s comedy.

“It’s going to be a thrill ride for the whole family, but it’s definitely going to be scary,” the New York Daily News quoted del Toro as telling the Hollywood Reporter.

“Walt Disney is one of the creators of some of the scariest images in my childhood. People forget that he not only made sweet images but also images of nightmare. We need to honour that side of the legacy,” he added. (ANI)
