Haunted Mansion will be directed by Justin Simien and is written by Katie Dippold and is based on the popular Disneyland ride of the same name. The ride was first adapted into a film in 2003 which starred Eddie Murphy. In that adaptation, Murphy played a workaholic retailer who along with his family, gets trapped inside a mansion inhabited by ghosts.

Haunted Mansion comes after the recent successful launch of Jungle Cruise starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. The movie was also based on a popular ride. A sequel to the action-adventure film is currently in the works.
