First came 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and the world scoffed. After all, who'd want to see a movie based off of a theme park ride? A couple hundred million dollars later, the answer to that question seemed to be everyone. Since that initial venture though, Disney theme park adaptations have had a less than stellar history, with 'The Haunted Mansion' bombing at the the box office (another one is now being planned) and a proposed 'Jungle Cruise' movie never getting off the ground.

Still, the success of the 'Pirates' series has kept these properties hot and big-name directors are hopping on the bandwagon. Guillermo Del Toro trying his own take at the 'Haunted Mansion'? Yes, please. Jon Favreau doing 'Magic Kingdom,' presumably based off the entire titular theme park? Um, okay. But what's next?

How about a movie adaptation of 'The Museum of the Weird,' an attraction that Walt Disney himself endorsed in the 1960s, but was never actually completed?
