SDCC: Guillermo del Toro to direct The Haunted Mansion

Right at the end of the Tron: Legacy panel in Hall H, A very special guest named Guillermo del Toro made an unannounced appearance to make the surprise announcement that he will co-write, produce and direct a new Haunted Mansion movie not related to the ill-fated 2003 film starring Eddie Murphy.

He later said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that "It's going to be a thrill ride for the whole family but it's definitely going to be scary," he said. "(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 honor that side of the legacy." and "We want a scary movie that's as scary as the ride. If you're 11 years old, you can go on the ride but it's still scary," said Disney production head Sean Bailey. "Tonally we're going to make a movie that is for families but is a fun and, at times, scary movie."
