Anne Hathaway has been cast as the Grand High Witch in Robert Zemeckis' new adaptation of Roald Dahl's famous book The Witches.
Zemeckis will bring a new spin on Dahl’s fantasy classic by shaking up the setting of the source material. In a recent interview with French outlet Allocine, Zemeckis revealed his adaptation will be an American period piece. “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.” The Back to the Future and Forrest Gump filmmaker will write and direct for Warner Bros. with Guillermo Del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron producing.
The Witches follows a young boy who goes to live with his grandmother following the death of his parents and learns the truth about witches before he has a run-in with a real-life coven, hell-bent on transforming children into mice en masse with the help of poisoned chocolates. Per the report, Zemeckis’ approach is “more rooted in the original source material” than the 1990s adaptation despite the new setting.

Or they could have adapted one of the Roald Dahl books that has not yet been adapted for the big screen, such as George's Marvellous Medicine for instance.

Looking forward to the comments from a certain someone about how Anne Hathaway has made bad career choices and how this film will be awful like Hathaway's previous films.... ;)

Just saw the trailer and now I know why it's on HBO MAX and not in 2021.
