Tiffany Haddish is reportedly in talks with producers to star in Disney’s upcoming “Haunted Mansion” movie alongside British actor LaKeith Stanfield.

The Haunted Mansion is a Disney ride which debuted in 1969 and currently appears in both Disneyland and Disney World.

And parkgoers love it.

This will not be the ride’s first feature film.

In 2003, Disney adapted the ride into a 2003 movie starring Eddie Murphy. The remake will be directed by Justin Simien, who previously directed “Dear White People” and the horror flick “Bad Hair.”

hHaddish blew up after starring in Eric Andre’s “Bad Trip.” But her resume has vastly diversified since crossing over into the mainstream. She voices a character on the Netflix animated series, “Tuca & Bertie,” and she also nabbed a Grammy best comedy album for her unique “Black Mitzvah.” Another Black woman has not won the award since Whoopi Golderberg’s win in 1986.

In 2018, Haddish revealed that her career goal is to make 80 films by the time she turns 50-years-old.

“[That] will create a lot of jobs for people. Every time you make a movie, the smallest crew could be 50, and the largest crew could be 500 people. That’s, how many jobs are you creating? How much generational wealth are you creating when you get to tell and give other people the opportunity to tell that story with you?” she said at the time.

“I was scared to be like, I want to give people jobs, I want to see us working, I want to see our stories,” she says. “[They] try to put this idea in your mind that the white man upstairs, the man upstairs is gonna block you, he’s gonna keep you … and what I realized is there’s nobody blocking you but you.”
