Original Witch Mountain Kids Return

Kim Richards (“Black Snake Moan”) and Ike Eisenmann (“Howl’s Moving Castle”), the original kid stars of Disney’s 1970s “Witch Mountain” movies, have joined the cast of Disney’s remake “Race to Witch Mountain” says Reuters.

In a nod to the original movies, Eisenmann plays a sheriff and Richards plays a waitress at a roadhouse called Ray’s in a town called Stony Creek. They help a cabbie (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and his two paranormal-powered passengers (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig).

Tom Everett Scott, Chris Marquette, Billy Brown and Cheech Marin also recently joined the production which Andy Fickman is helming.

Scott is playing a medical specialist, Marquette is a computer specialist, and Brown is a military specialist working for the bad guy (Ciaran Hinds). Marin plays a helpful mechanic.
