According to The Wrap, Ryan Gosling is currently in talks to star in Disney’s upcoming Haunted Mansion remake. The film is set to be written and produced by Guillermo del Toro.
Rumors suggest that Gosling and del Toro recently developed a close friendship. They were recently spotted together at Disneyland during Oscar weekend, where they reportedly experienced the Haunted Mansion ride along with Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain Railroads, and the Pirates of the Caribbean.
The original film ‘The Haunted Mansion’ starred Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Tilly.

When they discover that the place is haunted, Jim discovers an important lesson about the family he’s neglected as they attempt to escape.
