Warner Bros. Pictures and Robert Zemeckis’s reimagined “The Witches,” will premiere exclusively on HBO Max
“The Witches” stars Oscar winners Anne Hathaway and Octavia Spencer with Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci. Plus, award-winning comedy legend Chris Rock, Kristin Chenoweth and more.
“The Witches is a wonderful reimagining of Roald Dahl’s classic tale that combines world-class filmmaking with fantastic performances. It’s fun for the whole family and ideal for this time of year,” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
In addition to the film’s U.S. HBO Max debut on October 22, the film will head to theaters internationally beginning October 28.
Based on the book by Roald Dahl, the screenplay is by Robert Zemeckis & Kenya Barris (TV’s “black-ish,” “Shaft”) and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”). Zemeckis is also producing, alongside Jack Rapke, del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Luke Kelly. Serving as executive producers are Jacqueline Levine, Marianne Jenkins, Michael Siegel, Gideon Simeloff and Cate Adams.
