New Disney Haunted Mansion movie to be produced by Guillermo del Toro

Here's an exciting announcement — Disney is making a feature film based on the Haunted Mansion, the greatest dark-ride ever conceived, to be directed written and produced by Guillermo del Toro. This last fact is the most critical piece of the news, as it suggests the possibility that this Haunted Mansion movie won't be an unmitigated turd, as the previous one was (it's telling that the official Disney announcement linked below doesn't even mention the Rob Minkoff 2003 suckfest with Eddie Murphy).

Yes, I want to believe. Oh please, oh please, oh please, make a movie as kick-ass as the ride.
