Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’ is getting another remake
Roald Dahl’s beloved 1983 novel ‘The Witches’ is getting another adaptation.
It’s been almost 30 years since the Nicolas Roeg directed Jim Henson classic that scared the shit out of every child that watched it.
Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future, Forrest Gump) is in final negotiations to direct the Roald Dahl adaptation. It’ll be produced by Oscar award winner’s Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) and Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity).
Sources close to the project have claimed that this adaption will be truer to the source material than Roeg’s version. Maybe it’ll rectify the ending of the last film that Dahl so famously hated.
