The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Florida), opened in 1994. Also, the game was released at Disney California Adventure; at Walt Disney Studios in France; and at Tokyo DisneySea.
The attraction achieved great levels of popularity that ‘The house of the mouse’ decided to make a television adaptation of it in 1997, which starred Steve Guttenberg and Kirsten Dunst. Now, a new live-action is coming.
As detailed by Collider, Torre del terror will become Disney’s new film project, which will feature the presence of Scarlett Johansson in the title role.
In addition, Johansson will be behind the production, through his company These pictures, which will be associated with Jonathan Lia, recognized for his work with artists such as Beyoncé, Madonna, Bruno Mars, among others.
In addition, as confirmed by the aforementioned medium, Josh Cooley -director of Toy Story 4 and scriptwriter of Intensely- is in charge of the script, which is already in the process of development. Therefore, further details of the plot are not yet available.
On the other hand, it is not known who will be the director in charge of the feature film. However, it is said that “Disney will aim high.” This is reported by Screenrant.

Nonetheless, they have had a good foundation with Pirates of the Caribbean, which became a saga of five installments and managed to raise – according to The Hollywood reporter – an approximate of 4.5 billion dollars in total.
They would seek to replicate that same concept with Jungle Cruise, a film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, which will be released on July 30 this year.
