New live-action "Haunted Mansion" movie planned at Disney

Disney is working on another live-action Haunted Mansion, Variety reports. The first, you'll remember, was in 2003 and starred Eddie Murphy.

Disney is conjuring up a new "Haunted Mansion" live-action movie, based on its 51-year-old Disneyland theme park ride, with "Ghostbusters" writer Katie Dippold attached.

Producers are Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich through their Rideback banner. Lin has extensive producer experience with the "Sherlock Holmes," "It" and "Lego" franchises. He and Eirich teamed on Disney's live-action "Aladdin" movie last year.
