Even though Disney has already released a film adaptation of its famous ride, The Haunted Mansion, but it appears that another is already on the way.

Announced as a surprise at the very end of Disney's Comic Con panel, The Haunted Mansion will be directed by critically acclaimed fantasy director Guillermo Del Toro. According to Del Toro, the theme park adaptation is reportedly a dream project of his since childhood. Del Toro also insists that this latest version will not be a comedy, unlike the critically slammed Eddie Murphy version. He insists that the film will be scary, but still fun.

The plot will revolve around a central character of the ride the Hatbox Ghost, and will introduce a new mythology for the ride.
