"Stretching" Teaser Poster.

In July 2010, Guillermo del Toro announced at Comic-Con that he was developing a new film based on the Haunted Mansion attraction. The film will be live-action and in 3D.

The Hatbox Ghost is to be a pivotal figure in the film's story, and Del Toro analogized his version of the character to a spider in the center of a web of haunted mansions all over the world.
