Disneyland Attraction Tower of Terror Being Turned into a Film

Because originality is now dead and buried in Hollywood, Disney is turning another of its theme park attractions into a film, reports The Tracking Board.

Tower of Terror is based on “The Twilight Zone,” although that connection will likely need to be dropped for the film due to copyright restrictions. In addition to a roller-coaster, guests can also enter the creepy hotel at the Disneyland attraction, which, naturally, is haunted.

It was actually adapted into a made-for-TV movie in 1997. A theatrical film was announced in 2009, but nothing came of it until screenwriter John August, known for his collaborations with Tim Burton, pitched an idea that Disney couldn’t refuse, although he won’t be writing the script. Producer Jim Whitaker, known for American Gangster and Robin Hood, will produce via his company Whitaker Entertainment.

After the huge success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, it comes as no surprise that the folks at Disney are trying to turn another of their iconic attractions into a movie. Let’s just hope that this ends up more like POTC and less like The Haunted Mansion.
