After a trip to Disneyland with director Guillermo del Toro, Ryan Gosling is steeping into the lead role in Disney’s THE HAUNTED MANSION movie!
Imagine taking a trip to Disneyland and bumping into Ryan Gosling and Guillermo del Toro as they ride Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion rides. That’s exactly what happened to a few park visitors last week! And it turns out the two weren’t just getting some thrills– they were preparing for a movie.
After moderating the panel for Ryan Gosling’s LOST RIVER at SXSW, Guillermo del Toro has tapped the actor to star in his new superfamily family film for Disney, THE HAUNTED MANSION!
The project has been underway at Disney since 2010 and del Toro previously said it will be family friendly, but also creepy enough to capture the true spirit of a haunted house:
“It’s going to be fun, but the idea is to make it scary like when you go through the ride as [a]kid—part of you is charmed, and part of you wants to get out of there.”
Coming from the director of HELLBOY and PAN’S LABYRINTH, we have no doubt that the eerie visual will give us the heebie jeebies.
