Guillermo del Toro to take on 'Haunted Mansion'
Del Toro will direct the film for Disney, which is based on the amusement park ride. But del Toro told the Comic-Con crowd that his version of the movie will be frightening. Don't take the kids, he warned. Because they will get scared.
He also made it clear that this film will be nothing like the family-oriented Eddie Murphy version released in 2003.
"We are not returning Eddie Murphy's call," he said, to a chorus of approving whoops from the crowd.
We want this to be "the haunted house movie that a generation remembers and loves," he added.
What do you think? Excited to see what the director of "Pan's Labyrinth" can do with a Disney ride? Or should he have stuck with his plans to direct "The Hobbit," despite the all those production delays?
