Leto is reportedly starring as the Hatbox Ghost, a staple of the attraction. As we have noted, Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who you may know as the duo behind Disney’s live-action Aladdin and the upcoming Lilo & Stitch remake, will produce the live-action Haunted Mansion film under their Rideback production banner.
