Guillermo del Toro takes on the spooky and beloved Roald Dahl children's tale
The Witches will be an adaptation of Roald Dahls classic childrens novel of the same name. The story follows a seven year old boy and his encounter with real-life witches.
Mexican director Guillermo del Toro will direct this stop-motion feature. If it's anything like his dark and fanciful Pan's Labyrinth, then we can expect a more somber and visually inspired take on the story, which was last adapted to screen by director Nicolas Roeg in his 1990 film starring Anjelica Huston.
