Robert Zemeckis is in final negotiations to direct Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book “The Witches,” studio sources tell Variety.

Sources say a deal is expected shortly. Zemeckis will also pen the script, with his partner Jack Rapke producing through their banner ImageMovers, along with Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo del Toro. Del Tor had long been attached to direct, but a scheduling conflict led the Oscar winner to vacate the director’s chair.

Based on the 1973 novel, the film follows a seven-year-old boy who has a run in with real-life witches. Warner Bros. had previously adapted the book in 1990 with Anjelica Huston playing one of the title characters, but sources close to the project say Zemeckis’ version will be more rooted in the original source material, while the Huston pic was a loose adaptation.

Cette équipe de fou. Curieux de voir Zemeckis revenir à ce genre de film...

Jamais entendu parler du film de Roeg alors qu’il date de 1990.

Film assez curieux mais pas franchement génial. Un projet qui peut être pas mal pour Zemeckis.

Très bon film pour enfants, le Roeg qui marche toujours très bien avec des enfants de 11-12 ans (un Princess Bride a plus vieilli d'après moi). Le début contient des moments sublimes. L'adaptation me paraît déjà fidèle sauf pour un happy end postiche qui avait scandalisé Roald Dahl.
Et un plutôt bon article sur culturopoing ... g/20141016

For those not familiar with the classic children’s book, “The Witches” tells the story of a retired witch hunter and her grandson who take on a group of evil witches. Fairly simple stuff, in the big picture sense. However, it appears that the director is making one major change from the novel. He’s changing the setting and the time-period for his adaptation.

In a new interview with French outlet Allocine, Zemeckis talks about his version of the Dahl story, saying, “We’re going to set it in the Gothic South in the 1960s. It’s an exciting way to put a sociological spin on this kind of witch story.”

Et casting de renoi aussi appremment.
