Now he’s an unenthusiastic ghost tour guide in the French Quarter of New Orleans who no longer believes in the paranormal."
- Tiffany Haddish as Harriet, a "a hapless psychic who is hired to speak with the spirits at the Haunted Mansion."
- Owen Wilson

- Danny DeVito as "a smug professor."
A Haunted Mansion reboot was announced as far back as 2010 with the intent to have Guillermo del Toro write, produce and direct the film. His take would have featured the famous Hatbox Ghost in a major role and be legitimately terrifying and funny. Imagineer Jason Surrell was brought on as a creative consultant. However, due to numerous delays, del Toro dropped out as director, but would remain as a writer and producer. Ryan Gosling had entered early negotiations to star, while D.V. DeVincentis was hired to rewrite the script. Ultimately, nothing came of this version.
In August 2020, Katie Dippold was hired to pen a new screenplay, while Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich would co-produce. The following year, Justin Simien signed on as director, while Tiffany Haddish and Lakeith Stanfield entered negotiations to star.
In August 2020, it was revealed that casting was underway for the roles of Master Gracey and his wife, the Mariner, the butler, the Bride (based on the Constance Hatchaway version), and a duelist. Additionally, roles for the portrait ghosts are also underway.
Production is expected to begin in October 2021 under the working title Joyride. Owen Wilson and Rosario Dawson joined the cast in early September. In mid-October, Danny DeVito joined the project.
