Looks like Disney’s remake of Escape to Witch Mountain has added to both its cast and its title this morning. The Hollywood Reporter got word that the film, originally called simply Witch Mountain, is now being referred to as Race to Witch Mountain.
Personally I like Escape better, but no one in Hollywood listens to me anymore. Ciaran Hinds (pictured, There Will be Blood) and Alexander Ludwig (The Seeker) have signed on to the action/thriller, which already boasts names like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The redux will tell of a pair of supernatural siblings (Ludwig and AnnaSophia Robb) who go on the run with Johnson to escape a group of evil men, which Hinds will play the leader of, who wish to exploit their gifts. Andy Fickman is on board to direct.
Shooting on Race to Witch Mountain is expected to start in late March.
