Ryan Gosling In Talks For Guillermo del Toro’s Spooky ‘Haunted Mansion’

Apr 10, 2015

The Wrap reports that Oscar nominated actor Ryan Gosling has started talks with Disney to star in Guillermo del Toro‘s Haunted Mansion. Gosling has been developing a relationship with del Toro since SXSW, where the genre director supported Ryan’s film The Lost River. The two were later spotted together during Oscar weekend at Disneyland which included rides such as The Haunted Mansion.


Ryan has longstanding roots with Disney being apart of the Mickey Mouse Club back in the 90’s alongside Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and his former boy band mate Justin Timberlake (yup, go look it up!). An embarrassing part of his past he’s been trying forever to erase, which has led to him avoiding massively commercial projects. Recently, the actor had been seeking out a bigger film role being linked for projects including Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, and Sinister Six.

Disney and Guillermo first announced the film at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2010, with D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity) currently writing the remake’s script. The horror director had been attached to direct but is about to begin production on Pacific Rim 2, it’s unknown if he’s still going to make Haunted Mansion. This adds even more doubt on him making Justice League Dark for Warner Bros.

Guillermo is already about to release another haunted house flick with Crimson Peak that stars Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska in October.
