Justin Simien To Direct “Haunted Mansion”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Justin Simien (“Dear White People,” “Bad Hair”) is in negotiations to direct a film adaptation of the Disneyland theme park attraction “Haunted Mansion” for Disney Pictures.

On the ride, theme park guests go inside a spooky and creepy manor that includes some classic characters like the spirit of psychic medium Madame Leota to the skeletal Bride to the cloaked Hatbox Ghost.

Dan Lin, Jonathan Eirich and Nick Reynolds are producing while Katie Dippold penned the most recent draft. Rob Minkoff helmed a previous 2003 film adaptation starring Eddie Murphy, but this is said to be completely different in tone and approach.
