Carla Gugino And Garry Marshall (!?) Join The RACE FOR WITCH MOUNTAIN!!

Merrick here...
Carla Gugino will appear opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN, Disney's "reimagining"/extension of ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN and RETURN FROM WITCH MOUNTAIN. Actor/producer/director Garry Marshall is also being thrown into the mix. While he's primarily known for creating TV series like HAPPY DAYS, LAVERNE & SHIRLEY, and MORK & MINDY - he also has an extensive acting career.
In Andy Fickman's feature, Gugino will play a discredited astrophysicist and UFO expert who meets up with a Las Vegas cab driver (Johnson). He asks for her extraterrestrial expertise to help a pair of psychic siblings escape the clutches of evil men and save the human race from impending doom. Marshall plays a government and UFO conspiracy theorist/fringe scientist who helps them in their quest. Alexander Ludwig and AnnaSophia Robb play the siblings.

    I remember those films!

    by JamesTCT

    Escape sucked but I remember "Return to Witch Mountain" vividly, it had Bette Davis as a gambling obsessed crazy woman and Christopher Lee as a guy who wanted to take over the world. Not a bad film at all! But reimaginings suck.

    Heh.

    by manicart1

    I have happy memories of watching Escape to Witch Mountain one morning at school when we were snowed in and lessons were cancelled. No real point to that story, I thought I'd just make you feel all warm and wholesome before chucking in the more unwholesome fact that I want to touch Carla Gugino's LOVELY BREASTs. With my nob!

    Carla

    by Forsakyn

    Is just incredibly hot. One of these days I may even return her calls... But I have so many beautiful women after me. Seriously, though - she is gorgeous - almost to the point of distractingly so.

    those movies scared me as a kid

    by Rupee88

    Even watching that little clip creeps me out a bit...just those little kids running and the creepy music and the ghost dogs chasing them....just frightening to what remains of my 7 y/o mind..

  • March 15, 2008, 10:50 a.m. CST

    Is there nothing else than can be made instead?

    by Drath

    Not to bitch, but Witch Mountain was not exactly something that needs to be revisited. I'd sooner revisit the Last fucking Starfighter or Enemy Mine! I know name recognition is nice, but there MUST be some books or even some imaginative screenwriters (oxymoron?) out there with some new ideas--or even just new packaging for old ideas! Or is this on the same level as Norbit and the Pacifier?

  • March 15, 2008, 12:25 p.m. CST

    Is this going to be straight to video?

    by TRON

    I bet it will be another vehicle for a G rated film. Not that theres anything wrong with G rating except the standards of G today seem to have a pace and intensity geared not for childern but toddlers.

  • March 15, 2008, 3:50 p.m. CST

    Yeah

    Kim Richards ...

    I had such a little crush on her when I was a kid. Oh, and yeah remakes suck. I wish they would just stop.

    Christopher lee

    by Mocata

    The big guy was in Return To Witch Mountain so the producers should get him for this one.he always adds a touch of class.

  • March 16, 2008, 9:17 a.m. CST

    Good call, Mocata

    by Saxster

    I have to agree with that one.

    Who remembers the storybook album more than the movie?

    by Anakin Whoopass

    I'm not even sure I ever saw Escape to Witch Mountain but I must have played that storybook album dozens of times as a kid. Ah, the days of no home video, when they'd make a record album from the movie's audio accompanied with a picture book. The main titles of the film are very James Bond, with kids and dogs instead of tits and guns.

  • March 16, 2008, 12:07 p.m. CST

    Dude!

    by micturatingbenjamin

    It was Christopher Lee and Bette fucking Davis. Both were slumming, but hey, it was better than Million Dollar Duck.

    The name Gugino...

    by BizarroJerry

    I think I know why even the name sounds hot. It seems like a strange combination of the fun slang term "coochie" and what it refers to, "vagina". Then that combination is translated into Italian, and you get "Gugino".

  • March 16, 2008, 3:35 p.m. CST

    I wish they would remake Cat from Outer Space

    That movie rocked.

    What happened to Sandy Duncan anyway?

    She was the bomb in the 70's.

  • March 22, 2008, 12:18 p.m. CST

    Yawn.

    by Sylvia Simon

    Yeah, this will probably suck, sad but true. But if Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann are in it anywhere, I'll watch. 'Cause I loved the original when I was a kid.
