'Haunted Mansion': Disney Reboot Starring Tiffany Haddish And LaKeith Stanfield Gets Release Date

Disney’s reboot of Haunted Mansion has received its release date.

According to Deadline, Haunted Mansion will come to theaters March 10. The film stars Tiffany Haddish, LaKeith Stanfield, Rosario Dawson, Owen Wilson and Danny DeVito and directed by Justin Simien.

The story, written by Katie Dippold, follows a widower (Stanfield) who moves into the titular mansion in Louisiana. According to the description, Stanfield’s character was a person “who once believed in the supernatural but is now a rather lifeless tour guide in New Orleans’s French Quarter.” Haddish will play a psychic who can speak to spirits, perfect for Stanfield’s new mansion.

No word on who Wilson, DeVito, and Dawson are playing, but according to IMDb’s description of the film, Dawson could be playing Gabbie, a single mom. It was originally reported that Stanfield’s tour guide character would be the widower who buys the mansion, but IMDb describes Gabbie as the one who buys the house and hires Stanfield’s character, Haddish’s character, a historian and a priest to exorcise the house. More than likely, Wilson and DeVito are playing the other two characters.

It’s worth noting that Dawson and Wilson are part of the Disney fold now. Wilson recently had a career rebirth thanks to his character Mobius from Loki, and Dawson plays Ashoka Tano in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. She also took part in Marvel’s Netflix universe in Luke Cage.
