Rosario Dawson on board the Haunted Mansion Reboot
The film also stars Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson and LaKeith Stanfield
We had earlier reported that a Haunted Mansion reboot is in development at Disney with Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson and LaKeith Stanfield headlining the project. It's now known that Mandalorian actor Rosario Dawson has been roped in for the project.
The reboot is set to be directed by Justin Simien, famous for Dear White People and Bad Hair, from a script written by Katie Dippold. Haunted Mansion is based on the scary theme park ride which first opened at Disneyland in 1969. The ride took guests through a terrifying manor filled with ghosts, ghouls and various other undead residents. It was also one of the only attractions in which Disney employees were encouraged not to smile.
Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced the live-action Aladdin film, is bankrolling the new project that will go on floors from October.
