Dear God Won’t Someone Stop Them?!?!?

You know….I really like Disney’s Escape To Witch Mountain, so much so, I used to pretend I had powers like Tony and Tia’s. But there’s still some idiot in charge at Disney Studios! Someone stop him (or her), please!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in talks to star in “Witch Mountain,” a modern re-imagining of Disney’s 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.

Disney is eyeing a March 2008 start date. Andy Fickman is on board to direct; he and Johnson worked together on Disney’s upcoming family comedy “The Game Plan.” Johnson’s recent credits include “Walking Tall” and “Gridiron Gang.”

    the original was cute in a dated way
    i can’t imagine the newer will be better – full of special effects and flying saucers etc.
