Kate McKinnon Joins Amblin’s “Lunch Witch”

Emmy winner Kate McKinnon (“Ghostbusters,” “Saturday Night Live”) is set to topline Amblin Entertainment’s “The Lunch Witch” based on the 2015 young adult novel by Deb Lucke.

McKinnon will play a witch named Grunhilda, a bitter woman who inherited recipes and a cauldron from her ancestors. She takes a job as a lunch lady and frightens the children. That is until she meets and befriends a timid, bespectacled girl named Madison – even though lending a helping hand goes against her witch values.

Clay Kaytis (“Angry Birds”) directs the live-action movie which Michael De Luca and Johnny Pariseau are producing.
