Ladies, Roald Dahl's 'The Witches' is getting a remake
Anyone else remember the TERROR?
I love hearing news of a new remake!
Loads of films and shows from my youth are getting adapted lately.
The latest film from back in the day to get rebooted? The Witches.
I remember the first time I watched The Witches. I had read the book and was super excited about the film.
And here I am, 20 years later, still shook.
As of today, it has been revealed that Robert Zemeckis is in final negotiations to direct an adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic book The Witches, according to Variety.
FYI, Zemeckis is the genius who directed the Back To The Future franchise and Forrest Gump.
So we're in good hands I suppose.
A number of fans have had their say on Zemeckis being chosen to direct the film.
"I am speechless. I trust that Zemeckis can deliver something dark and unsettling that sticks to the original ending."
Another added: "I will keep an eye out on this remake. Hopefully they make it closer to the book and have the main character be European instead of American. That always bothered me in the original film."
No word on when the film will hit the screens.
