Stanley Tucci joins the cast of Robert Zemeckis’ ‘The Witches’

Stanley Tucci has been added to the cast of Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’.

Also joining Tucci on the cast is comedian Chris Rock. Both Tucci and Rock join the already cast Anne Hathaway as the Grand High Witch, the role previously played by Angelica Houston in the 1990 classic, and Octavia Spencer who will play the role of the grandmother of the main character Bruno.

It has been reported that the new version will be staying closer to the novel than the 1990 offering which was merely a loose adaptation. The film follows a seven-year-old boy (Bruno) who has a run-in with real-life witches.

Zemeckis, as well as directing, will also pen the script. He will also serve as producer with his partner Jack Rapke through their banner ImageMovers, along with Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo del Toro.

Lorraine Warren Dies: Paranormal Investigator & Subject Of ‘The Conjuring’ Films Was 92
Lorraine Warren, a noted paranormal investigator and author who, along with her husband Ed, was the subject of James Wan’s The Conjuring films, has died. Warren died “peacefully in her sleep,” Thursday night according to Facebook posts by her grandson Chris McKinnell and The New England Society for Psychic Research.

Warren was a professed clairvoyant and a light trance medium who worked closely with her husband, who together were associated with some of the most prominent cases of hauntings and possessions. Ed Warren died in 2006.

Their cases became the inspiration for blockbuster horror films such The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, which were based on the Warrens’ real-life events. Set in Rhode Island in 1971, the 2013 film starred Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, who portrayed Warren, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Foy, and Joey King. Prequel Annabelle was released the following year and The Conjuring 2 in 2016. In 2013’s The Conjuring,

  • HeyUGuys
To mark the release of The Nutcracker and The Four Realms on 11th March, we’ve been given 3 copies on Blu-ray.

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key – which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regent who preside over the three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Review

Grant | Written by Ashleigh Powell | Directed by Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston

Disney’s latest hollow attempt at once again crafting another franchise in the same vein as the early Pirates of the Caribbean, and Alice in Wonderland, A Wrinkle in Time pictures etc comes in the guise of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Directed by both Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston (don’t worry we’ll get onto that a little later) their dual attempt to craft something worthy of entertainment almost, not quite, but almost verges on a criminal offence to the eyes and ears of any audience subjected to it.

Twilight: 20 Strange Details About Renesmee’s Anatomy

Adding children into a well-established property can be a bit tricky. In film and television especially, adding in a child can change the dynamic of the series, whether for better or worse. The addition of Renesmee Cullen (Mackenzie Foy), Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) daughter, was a pretty bold move for The Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer. The character herself didn’t lend much in the way of personality, though she was a cause of controversy amongst fans, in particular when Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) imprinted on her. It’s something that didn't sit well with many fans when the novel was released, let alone years later.

Even so, the concept of half-vampires remained an interesting one. While this was definitely lore fans would have appreciated earlier on, rather than being introduced in the final book (along with “Immortal Children”), it was still an interesting fleshing out of the world.

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ writer on making the ballet more character-driven [Red Carpet Video]

“We really wanted to take the story that everyone knew from the ballet and expand it and turn it into more of a character journey for Clara the heroine,” screenwriter Ashleigh Powell tells Gold Derby (watch the exclusive interview above). It is her debut film, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” which is now in theaters with Mackenzie Foy in the lead role and Keira Knightley receiving top billing as the Sugar Plum Fairy. In our red carpet chat she adds, “It’s very beautiful and whimsical, but it’s a little bit of a fever dream that there’s no real emotional arc for her over the course of it, so we wanted to [use the source material as] the starting point of a much larger adventure into the world that we haven’t necessarily seen before on the big screen.”
