Del Toro to remake The Witches

9 Dec

Last week it was revealed that Guillermo del Toro will direct a new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches; Cuarón will produce. Speaking to Emily Phillips of Empire Online while promoting the UK release of son Jonás’ feature film Año uña, he revealed del Toro’s plans to “do it completely in stop-motion animation.” Jessica Barnes from Cinematical looked back to two years ago when Warner Bros. announced the project: “When Nicolas Roeg’s version was released back in 1990, a few changes were made to make the story a little less disturbing for the kiddies (including a much lower body count). But for you purists out there, at least we can rely on the fact that at least Del Toro isn’t afraid to play rough with kids on the big screen.”
