News Warner Bros. Sets October, 2020 Release for New Adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’ Published 9 months ago on January 31, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Thanks to an update via the Exhibitor Relations website, Warner Bros. is set to debut Robert Zemeckis’ The Witches in theaters in time for Halloween – October 16th, 2020. RELATED: ANNE HATHAWAY CAST AS THE GRAND HIGH WITCH IN NEW ‘THE WITCHES’ We recently learned via Deadline that that American actress and singer Anne Hathaway has been cast to play the Grand High Witch in Zemeckis’ new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches. Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron will produce the new adaptation of Dahl’s story. The project will be more rooted in the original source material, while the Huston movie was a loose adaptation. Zemeckis version will take place in the ’60s Gothic South. Synopsis: “Grandmamma loves to tell about witches. Real witches are the most dangerous of all living creatures on earth. There’s nothing they hate so much as children, and they work all kinds of terrifying spells to get rid of them. Her grandson listens closely to Grandmamma’s stories—but nothing can prepare him for the day he comes face-to-face with The Grand High Witch herself!” Viola Davis (Widows) is circling the project as well.
