Rosario Dawson is the latest Disney+ star to join the cast of Disney’s Haunted Mansion. According to Deadline, The Mandalorian actress has already signed on to the project, which is set to begin filming in Atlanta, Georgia later this month.
Rosario Dawson joins LaKeith Stanfield (Knives Out), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), and Owen Wilson (Loki, Cars), who were all previously confirmed.
The plot is being kept under wraps, however, it is known that the film will purportedly follow a family who moves into the titular mansion. The film will feature a number of well-known ghosts and ghouls. Production is slated to begin later this month.
The film will be directed by Justin Simien, who was previously announced to be working on a Lando Calrissian solo series for Disney+. Although it is unknown when Disney plans to release the film, it is expected to be released theatrically rather than through Disney’s streaming service. The script will be written by Kate Dippold, who wrote the 2016 female-led version of Ghostbusters.
Following the 2003 film, this retelling of the story will be the second time the attraction is brought to the big screen. The Haunted Mansion, directed by Rob Minkoff, garnered mixed reviews and has been mostly blacklisted by The Walt Disney Company.
The remake’s plot is expected to be a continuation of the lore developed by the iconic Disneyland and Disney World ride.
