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

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.

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!

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.
March 15, 2008, 9:50 a.m. CST
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
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
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.

I had such a little crush on her when I was a kid. Oh, and yeah remakes suck. I wish they would just stop.
March 16, 2008, 4:47 a.m. CST
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
I have to agree with that one.

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
It was Christopher Lee and Bette fucking Davis. Both were slumming, but hey, it was better than Million Dollar Duck.
March 16, 2008, 1:30 p.m. CST
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
That movie rocked.
March 16, 2008, 3:47 p.m. CST
is her unbelievably awesome tits. She really needs to share those with the world more.

You could churn out those animals from outer space sequals also. The Hamster from Outer Space, The Hippo from Outer Space, etc. A gold mine I'm telling ya.

lukasman thanks for my new desktop picture..wow,what a beauty she is

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.
