HAUNTED MANSION Movie Adds Jared Leto As Hatbox Ghost And Jamie Lee Curtis As Madame Leota

The new Haunted Mansion movie from director Justin Simien has made a couple of major casting additions, with Jared Leto set to play the Hatbox Ghost, and Jamie Lee Curtis signing on to play Madame Leota.

It's been a while since we've had any updates on this one, but Disney's new take on long-running Disney theme park attraction, Haunted Mansion, has made a couple of major casting additions.

According to EW, Jared Leto (Morbius) and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween Kills) have joined the ensemble, which also includes LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Rosario Dawson, and Danny DeVito. Leto is set to play The Hatbox Ghost, while Curtis will take on the role of Madame Leota, the psychic medium whose head resides in the ride's iconic crystal ball

"In this mysterious adventure, a doctor (Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase Dillon), looking to start a new life, move into a strangely affordable mansion in New Orleans, only to discover that the place is much more than they bargained for. Desperate for help, they contact a priest (Wilson), who, in turn, enlists the aid of a widowed scientist-turned failed-paranormal expert (Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Haddish) and a crotchety historian (DeVito)."

The Haunted Mansion was previously adapted for the big screen back in 2003, but the movie, directed by Rob Minkoff and starring Eddie Murphy, was a critical and commercial failure. Guillermo del Toro was attached to helm an earlier version of this reboot, but it never came to pass.

This latest incarnation was penned by Katie Dippold (Ghostbusters 2016), and is set to hit theaters on March 10, 2023.
