Soon after the filmmaker announced that he is officially developing the movie based on Disney's theme park ride, the first artwork from the new 3-D movie is unveiled.

Fantasy director Guillermo del Toro has been tapped to turn Disney's chilling theme park ride Haunted Mansion into a new 3-D movie. The "" filmmaker will co-write the screenplay and direct and produce the live-action "The Haunted Mansion (2013)".

It will be Disney's second attempt to take film audiences on a tour of the horror property - Eddie Murphy starred in a supernatural comedy also called "" in 2003. But Del Toro's project will have no connection to the Murphy movie and he has warned fans to expect a scary ride.

He tells trade paper Daily Variety, "We will make the Haunted Mansion the most haunted place on Earth. We are not making it a comedy. We will make it scary and fun at the same time. For me, the Mansion needs to be the haunted house movie for this generation."

Del Toro made the announcement on Thursday, July 22 during an appearance at the 2010 Comic-Con in San Diego, California. Soon after, a poster from the film has been launched.
