The Rock Climbs Witch Mountain

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in negotiations to headline Walt Disney Pictures’ modern re-imagining of the classic 1975 adventure movie “Escape to Witch Mountain.”

The story follows a pair of siblings, endowed with paranormal powers, who go on the run from a diabolical group of men who wish to exploit their abilities.

Johnson will play a Las Vegas cab driver who is in for the ride of his life when he picks up the duo.

Matt Lopez wrote the current ‘Witch’ draft, whilst Andy Fickman is on board to direct. A March 2008 start-of-filming is planned.
