Following hot on the heels of the casting of Owen Wilson (Loki), Deadline is now reporting that Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian) is on board to star in Disney’s upcoming Haunted Mansion remake.
Dawson is set to star alongside Owen Wilson (Marvel’s Loki) whose role is currently undisclosed as well as LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish. The outlet is also reporting that filming is expected to begin next month.
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.”
