Disney has decided to remake their 1975 adventure film Escape to Witch Mountain. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andy Fickman will be directing the project.
The original film was base on a novel by Alexander Key. The story follows two siblings who have paranormal powers. They are forced to go on the run from a diabolical group of men who plan to use their powers for world domination. Turns out, the brother and sister are aliens from another planet.
Matt Lopez wrote the current version of the screenplay. The film will most likely go into production after Fickman completes the film Bedtime Stories, starring Adam Sandler.
