What we said: Walt Disney Pictures is going back to the theme park. The studio announced [at Comic-Con] that it was developing a new film based on its Haunted Mansion attraction, a live-action monster picture that uses characters and elements from the haunted house. Upping the news -- and intrigue -- level is the filmmaker taking it on: Genre auteur Guillermo del Toro (pictured) will direct the film and co-write it with his "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" co-scribe Matthew Robbins.
