A couple of weeks ago, a picture surfaced that featured two of my favorite individuals hanging out at the Happiest Place on Earth. I had a feeling this was no random mistake on their part, and something was definitely cooking up. And sure enough, the best thing ever to be heavily rumored was prepping in the House of Mouse kitchen. That’s right, that Haunted Mansion movie is finally happening, and Ryan Gosling is gonna be in it. Sound the trumpets, and queue the Ghost Host, today is indeed a good day! (Source)
