Also in the film are Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Jared Leto (Morbius), Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhands), Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), and Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show).
The Haunted Mansion ride for which the film is based was created in 1969 and is still a huge attraction to this day. The ride is full of supernatural frights from beginning to end and features a graveyard’s worth of characters. The most popular are the Hatbox Ghost, The Phantom, The Hitchhiking Ghosts, and Madame Leota.

Guillermo del Toro was initially attached to directing this new adaptation, but he was unfortunately forced to drop out of the project. It’s a safe bet that this new film is in safe hands, though, because there is plenty of top-tier talent that have worked to bring this new venture to life.
