To del Toro's schedule, we can also add The Haunted Mansion, a project the director's been developing at Disney for the past few years - like Pirates Of The Caribbean, the project's based on one of Disney's popular theme park attractions.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Gosling is "in talks" to star in the film - their news story tells us that both actor and director are big fans of Disney's ride, to the point where »
Guillermo Del Toro may be bringing one haunted house to the big screen in October with Crimson Peak, but it looks like he'll be staying in the genre for the time being, with his long gestating project set around Disneyland's Haunted Mansion attraction finally moving forward. Screenplay troubles hindered the movie for years, but the script seems to have been cracked, and Haunted Mansion is gaining speed, with The Wrap reporting that Ryan Gosling is in talks to take the lead role. If you've ever experienced the Haunted Mansion, you'll know it is an incredible amount of fun (that sadly didn't translate over to the previous Eddie Murphy adaption) more than the previous Eddie Murphy adaption), and just having Del Toro on board has me excited for this new adaption. But if Gosling signs on the dotted line, that excitement will go through the roof, with the two working together being a thrilling prospect. »

Haunted Mansion: Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in Disney's Haunted Mansion, to be directed by Guillermo del Toro. The project has been in development for nearly five years; D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity) is currently working on a new draft of the screenplay for what's described as a "supernatural family film."

Guillermo del Toro is courting Ryan Gosling to star in his Haunted Mansion project for Disney, TheWrap reports. The film has been in development for years (news of its existence was first dropped in 2010 at Comic-Con). Del Toro claims it's supposed to be a scary version of the movie, not like the super family-oriented Eddie Murphy version from 2003 (keep in mind this is coming from the same guy who said his stop-motion Pinocchio project was going to be super dark, too). "If you take the children, they will scream," del Toro said at Comic-Con, according to Variety. The best part of this story, though, is the reminder that on Oscar weekend del Toro and Gosling spent time at Disneyland. They rode the Haunted Mansion (obviously), as well as Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean. All that to say, there must be some pretty fantastic mid-ride »

Ryan Gosling may have just made his directorial debut with the dark urban fantasy Lost River, but don.t worry, he.s not giving up life in front of the camera just yet. In fact, it.s being reported that he.s teaming up with both pal Guillermo del Toro and Disney. The Wrap reports that the Drive star (and former Mouseketeer) is in talks to star in the Hellboy director.s long-in-the-works Disney film based on their Haunted Mansion ride. The movie has been in the process of coming to the big screen since 2010, when it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con, and del Toro himself has been circling for quite some time. Described as a "supernatural family film," this is going to be a marked departure for both Gosling and del Toro.who were also reportedly seen riding the ride at Disneyland over Oscar weekend, which is adorable. »
First announced at San Diego Comic-Con way back in 2010, the long-developing Guillermo del Toro-produced adaptation/interpretation/cinematic rendering of Disney ride The Haunted Mansion finally seems to be taking shape, with Drive‘s Ryan Gosling in talks to star. The Wrap reports Gosling (whose directorial debut Lost River hits this weekend) is in talks to star in The Haunted Mansion, but…

The Wrap reported today that Ryan Gosling is in talks to take the lead in Guillermo Del Toro's Haunted Mansion. The live action film will be a supernatural family film based on the popular ride at Disneyland. But this will not be your Eddie Murphy's Haunted Mansion. No siree. Guillermo said back in 2010 that this film would not be a comedy. The script is being written by D.V. DeVincentis who wrote the entertaining and comically inclined High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank, so I do not know where his supernatural chops lie. But Del Toro did promise back in the day that, "If you take the children, they will scream".It looks like that trip the pair made to Disneyland during Oscar weekend may have been for some...

It all makes sense now! What, we hear you ask? This picture of Ryan Gosling and Guillermo del Toro having a grand old time at Disney’s California theme park. Turns out that not only have they become totes besties, but they’ve also been figuring out ways to work together. The first product of this unlikely but pleasing pal union? Gosling is in talks to star in del Toro’s Haunted Mansion project.First announced at Comic-Con in 2010, the new cinematic take on the spooky theme park ride has been simmering away in development ever since, with D.V. DeVincentis as the writer currently engaged in cranking out the script. It’s hoped that the film will significantly improve on the decidedly dodgy 2003 Eddie Murphy comedy.What role Gosling would play remains to be seen, as he’s not officially aboard yet and no real details of the new movie’s plot have been revealed. »
Ryan Gosling is in talks to join Guillermo del Toro's long-gestating project Haunted Mansion 3D. Guillermo del Toro recently moderated a panel at the South By Southwest Film Festival last month for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River, and they were also spotted at Disneyland over Oscar weekend, riding the Haunted Mansion ride together and others such as Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain Railroad and Pirates of the Caribbean. No details were given for what character Ryan Gosling may portray.
Back in July, the director revealed that he may not direct Haunted Mansion, and that they have not cracked the story quite yet. The Wrap reports that D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity, Grosse Pointe Blank) is currently working on the script, although there is no indication about when production may begin. If Ryan Gosling does sign on, it will mark a reunion of sorts with Disney, since he was one »
Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in The Haunted Mansion, based on the ride at Disney's theme parks. Guillermo del Toro would direct, making this the best and also the strangest combination ever. Of course, this would be a completely separate film from 2003's The Haunted Mansion, which starred Eddie Murphy. No offense to Murphy or Disney, but this one sounds much better. Gosling started his career with Disney (in The Mickey Mouse Club) and has a history of visiting the park. Fun fact: According to The Hollywood Reporter, he and del Toro rode the ride together during Oscar weekend this year, making the news even more believable. But what would the plot be and who would Gosling play? We need details. »

Disney developing live-action adaptation of Pinocchio
Gosling is currently in the negotiations phase with Disney for a lead role in the horror movie, according to TheWrap.
The Wrap is reporting tonight that for his next project, Ryan Gosling will be heading back in front of the camera, as the actor/director has signed on to star in Guillermo del Toro’s Haunted Mansion. An adaptation of the popular Disneyland attraction, the live-action horror film will be shot in 3D and set in “a heightened reality, which is super designed and incredibly innovative, both narratively and visually.”
Del Toro first announced the project back in 2010, so it’s been a long time coming, and with a leading man now set, I would imagine that production will get underway in the near future. With Gosling on board, the studio shouldn’t have too much trouble filling out the rest of the cast in a timely fashion.
Details on the plot are scarce, which means that the actor’s role is currently unknown. All we can say for sure »

Like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake, Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling got his start on Disney's "The Mickey Mouse Club" as a child star. Since then, he's become quite the heartthrob and an amazing talent on the big screen, and now he's headed back to the House of Mouse. The Wrap reports Gosling is currently in talks to take a role in Guillermo del Toro's long developing adaptation of Haunted Mansion, the classic Disney theme park attraction. The project has been in the works for years ever since del Toro made the announcement at Comic-Con back in 2010. Can it finally come together soon? There's no timetable for the project, but if the studio is starting to round up a cast, then it might be closer to getting in front of cameras than we thought. There's no word on what role Gosling would take, or even what the story »

“The Haunted Mansion” has been in works at Disney for the past five years and is based on the popular attraction at the Disneyland theme park. Del Toro unveiled the project at Comic-Con in July, 2010 — a mere seven years after the release of the Eddie Murphy comedy of the same name, which grossed $180 million worldwide.
D.V. DeVincentis is working on the script for the film, which del Toro said in 2010 would not be a comedy. “If you take the children, they will scream,” he said at the time.
Gosling is a former Mouseketeer. He wrote, produced and directed “Lost River,” which is getting limited release from Warner Bros. this weekend, and has been filming Shane Black‘s “The Nice Guys” with Russell Crowe and Adam McKay’s »

Ryan Gosling is in talks to team up with Guillermo del Toro for a new big-screen take on the Haunted Mansion, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The Disney feature project is based on one of its signature theme-park rides. D.V. DeVincentis, best known for his work adapting High Fidelity, currently is working on the film's latest draft. Plot details are being kept in the basement, but it is described as a supernatural family adventure. Del Toro and Disney have been developing the project, mostly under the radar, since 2010, when the filmmaker announced it at Comic-Con. Disney and

Good news! It sounds like there's finally some forward motion on one of Guillermo del Toro's longtime passion projects - his Disney collaboration, Haunted Mansion. Per The Wrap, Ryan Gosling is in talks to join del Toro's long-gestating film based on the beloved Disney ride of the same name. The two filmmakers have recently struck up a friendship, with del Toro moderating a panel at SXSW last month to discuss Gosling's directorial debut, Lost River. The pair was also spotted at Disneyland over Oscar weekend, which might just be how they like to spend their free time, but was more likely a fun way to spend a day kicking around ideas for the project. [caption id="attachment_441513" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] The Haunted Mansion reboot has been in development with del Toro since it was announced at ComicCon in 2010, and last we heard about the project was in July of last year »

Last month, Ryan Gosling and Guillermo del Toro got together at SXSW to talk about the actor's directorial debut, "Lost River" (check out our report right here). During that talk it was revealed that Gosling and del Toro met a few years before to talk about a project, and though they didn't disclose which one, maybe we have our answer. The Wrap reports that Gosling is in talks to star in del Toro's long developing "Haunted Mansion" for Disney. The movie has been in the works since 2010, and it's been one the director has been eager about. "It's going to be scary. Hopefully it will be fun scary, rather than funny scary. It's going to be fun but the idea is to make it scary like when you go through the ride as the kid — part of you is charmed and part of you wants to get out of there, »
