In case you missed this news from yesterday.
Hoping to take a page from its wildly successful “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, Walt Disney Co said on Thursday it was developing a film based on its popular Haunted Mansion theme park attraction.
Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro will write and produce the film based on the landmark Disney ride that features a plantation-style mansion with ghosts, creepy creatures, secret passages and all the related sounds.
Disney said each year millions of people visit the Haunted Mansion, which opened in 1969 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Versions of the Haunted Mansion have been built at Disney theme parks in Orlando, Tokyo and Paris.
The “Pirates” franchise, also based on a theme park attraction, has grossed over $2.6 billion globally and a fourth “Pirates” film, starring Johnny Depp, is being filmed and is scheduled to be released in 2011.
No release date has been set for the “Haunted Mansion” movie, and I don’t believe Eddie Murphy will be staring in this one.

Dave (Jay Baruchel) is just an average college student, or so it appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) recruits him as his reluctant protégé and gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic. As he prepares for a battle against the forces of darkness in modern-day Manhattan, Dave finds it is going to take all of the courage he can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE.
This review comes to us from the NY Times.
Jay Baruchel, a gangly Canadian ectomorph who got the girl (though not much of an audience) in “She’s Out of My League” and who trained the cartoon dragon in “How to Train Your Dragon.” Here he plays an N.Y.U. physics major named Dave who tinkers with a giant Tesla coil in his subterranean laboratory and pines for Becky (Teresa Palmer), a pretty music lover who was his childhood crush.is the latest movie about an ordinary fellow — it’s almost always a fellow — who is, all of a sudden and to his great astonishment, dragged into an epochal, supernatural battle between good and evil. The fellow in question this time is the distinctly unpromising
Meanwhile, though, Dave has learned that he is the Prime Merlinian, which means that “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is not just another dweeb/cutie romantic comedy, but also a phantasmagorical action picture in which bolts of lightning will shoot out of people’s hands, and ancient spells will be uttered to cataclysmic effect right on the streets of Manhattan. To spare you the full rehash: hundreds of years ago a bunch of bad wizards were stuffed into a Russian doll, including the really mean Morgana (Alice Krige) and the gorgeous Veronica (Monica Bellucci). Now two supermagicians, Balthazar Blake and Maxim Horvath, battle to let one of the ladies out of the doll — called the Grimhold, by the way — and keep the other one trapped inside.
