The Haunted Mansion Movie We Always Wanted?

Guillermo del Toro announced that he will be writing and producing a new movie based on The Haunted Mansion!
Del Toro told MTV's Josh Horowitz, "For some people, it's just a ride, but for others like me, it's a way of life. We're serious fanatics. I'm a big, big collector of it. I've been collecting not only memorabilia but artifacts and original artifacts from the mansion for the past 10 years".

I am a HUGE fan of Del Toro's cinematic visions! A new Haunted Mansion movie that has a similar level of artistic depth and storytelling as "Hellboy" or "Pan's Labyrinth" has the possibily of rendering us Mansionphiles unable to lift our chins from off the floor after seeing it! This is very exciting news!

It also means that I will have a NEW haunted mansion paper model kit to design!

Guillermo! Please drop me a line! Let's talk!!! :)

Del Toro tapped artist Brandon Ragnar Johnson to design this teaser poster for the movie annoucement.
