Has Disney decided not to make a new big-screen movie based on the Haunted Mansion ride after all?
Some fans thought this could be the case when the studio pulled down information about the project from its web site.
But while the project is gone for the web, it’s still moving forward says producer Guillermo del Toro.
Speaking to Collidor, del Toro says that he delivered a revision of the script a few weeks ago and that Disney executives like his take on the material. He goes on to say he suspects some at Disney are waiting to see if he wants to direct the movie before giving it the green light to proceed.
“I came on board originally as a writer and producer, the decision I think they may be waiting, is for me to say I’m directing the movie. Or am I directing it next, which is too early for me to know what I’m doing next in live-action. I’m in the middle of Pacific Rim and I don’t know what I’m going to do next,” he says.
