by Thomas Tuna

The ghosts will hit the big house a little sooner than expected.

Haunted Mansion–inspired by the popular Disney theme park ride–will now hit theaters July 28, instead of the previously announced Aug. 11 theatrical release, according to a report on Deadline.

The film–directed by Justin Simien from a screenplay by Katie Dippold–follows single mother Gabbie (Rosario Dawson), who moves into a New Orleans mansion with her son (Chase Dillon), while looking for a new life.

But, when Gabbie discovers the house is haunted, she enlists the help of a priest (Owen Wilson), who “spins an exorcism into a wild adventure,” according to the synopsis.

After which, they turn to “a widowed scientist-turned-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a psychic from the French Quarter (Tiffany Haddish) and a crotchety historian (Danny DeVito) for help.”

The film also boasts appearances from Jamie Lee Curtis (as Madame Leota) and Jared Leto (as The Hatbox Ghost), as well as cameos from Winona Ryder and Dan Levy.

Scream Queen Curtis said the reboot is “modern, fresh, old-fashioned and scary. It’s scary like a Disney ride–with a lot of humor as well.”
