Disney Buys New Hotel...
Unfortunately, it's not a new Victorian styled one for the Disneyland Resort...
The Alphabet Network has won a bidding war with the Fox Broadcasting Company for the pilot of a series known as “Clive Barker’s Hotel,” according to this article in the Hollywood Reporter.
The series will be produced by, obviously Clive Barker and McG, through the director's Wonderland Sound and Vision. There is a chance that the pilot will be directed by the "Terminator Salvation" helmer, pending he likes the script. Scripting duties fall to Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (“Feast,” “Saw IV,” “Saw V,” “Saw VI”).
The story is described as taking place in a haunted hotel where dark and grisly events have been occurring... wonder how that'll fit into a theme park attraction?

There was actually a bidding war for this and Disney "won"?
that makes think of the Main Street Haunted Hotel at HKDL
Yeah, but it was really more than just the Alphabet Company and Fox, several others were involved as well.
They were simply the two biggest fish...
If it becomes a hit, they would have to license it for the parks. It's from Warner. It's too bad they let go of the Clive's Abarat series that they were planning for films and eventually the parks.
"that makes think of the Main Street Haunted Hotel at HKDL"
*gasp* that just gave me a great idea. Why doesnt Disney make a movie about the HDKL haunted hotel with the Victoria Balckwell storyline, and film it there? And then a few years after, make a movie about Phantom Manor that is very faithful to the original storyline instead of a made-up one? I know a lot of people even who are disney fans don't know about The Haunted Hotel in HDKL because its only seasonal, but i think it would make a great script and a great new Victorian-era movie. Beautiful hotel btw
