After featuring in a major role in Marvel’s Loki series, Owen Wilson’s partnership with Disney is set to continue as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the actor has been cast in Disney’s upcoming Haunted Mansion remake.
Although there is currently no news on which character Wilson will be playing, we do know that he is set to star alongside LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish.
The Haunted Mansion reboot will be directed by Justin Simien, who has previously directed Dear White People and Bad Hair. This project will serve as Simien’s first big-budget blockbuster. Katie Dippold (The Heat, 2016’s Ghostbusters) will pen the script.
The story will “follow a family that moves into the titular mansion. Stanfield would play a widower who once believed in the supernatural but is now a rather lifeless tour guide in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Haddish would play a psychic hired to commune with the dead.”
