New Details for Disney’s ‘Haunted Mansion’ Remake Have Emerged. Disney fans are very interested to see and hear any new details regarding the upcoming ‘Haunted Mansion’ live-action remake. Now we have several updates including a synopsis and potential casting!
The new synopsis for the movie states: “Gabbie, a single mother, and her young son [who] recently purchased a New Orleans estate [the Haunted Mansion] at auction only to discover it isn’t quite as empty as they expected. Gabbie hires a grieving widower who works as a ghost tour guide [Ben Matthias], a psychic [Harriet], a priest, and a local historian to exorcise the vengeful spirit from the Haunted Mansion.”
The Haunted Mansion remake will not be a sequel to the 2003 film, but its own reboot of the franchise. Dear White People Director Justin Simien will be directing the upcoming film for Disney instead. Other production team leads include Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich as producers for the movie, along with writer Katie Dippold (Parks and Recreation, The Heat), who is penning the script for the feature film.
According to The DisInsider, actress Tiffany Haddish has been offered the role of Harriet the Psychic but has not formally accepted the role at this time. This is a developing story, be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
