The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Is Ryan Gosling Moving in to The Haunted Mansion?

Honey Buzz ~ Is Ryan Gosling Moving in to The Haunted Mansion?


Like any good ghostly girl, The Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite rides in Disney World, second only to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. When Disney announced they were making a movie of the Mansion starring Eddie Murphy (during the "Fuck quality, I need a paycheck" phase of his career), I was none-to-pleased. The movie bombed and it seemed the beloved ride would remain just that... a beloved ride... forever more. 

But now, it appears that Disney is boarding the Haunted Mansion's hearse-like cars once more, and this time they're bringing far more elite stock along for the ride.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Gosling is in talks with Disney to make another film based on The Haunted Mansion, this time under the brilliant eye of Guillermo Del Toro. D.V. DeVincentis, who previously adapted High Fidelity for the screen, is currently working on the latest draft for the movie. Word is that the film has been in pre-production at Disney since 2010, and is finally moving forward now that Del Toro and Gosling are anxious to get a move on.

While a little bit of fear is natural, there is almost no one better suited to this project than Del Toro. The writer/director has a whole room in his house designed like the ride, including original wallpaper from The Haunted Mansion itself. While I'm not sure this movie will be a Pirate of the Caribbean-size financial success, it will definitely be a huge draw back to the Mouse for horror fans. And while not in the cult of Gosling, I understand some people are really into him. So lucky for you folks!
