Academy Award winner for Best Director, Robert Zemeckis is in negotiations to join in as a writer and director of the film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book The Witches for Warner Bros.

Zemeckis is also going to work on the script, with his partner Jack Rapke producing through their banner ImageMovers. The upcoming film will be produced by Oscar-winning directors Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro was earlier associated to direct the project but had to step aside due to scheduling conflicts, reported Variety.

The film is based on the 1973 novel and follows a seven-year-old boy who has a run in with real-life witches. Warner Bros. had previously adapted the book in 1990 with Anjelica Huston playing one of the title characters. Sources close to the project say Zemeckis’ version will be more rooted in the original source material.

Robert Zemeckis is an American filmmaker frequently credited as an innovator in visual effects. In recent years, Zemeckis has been working on adult-centered dramas like Flight, Allied, and his upcoming Welcome to Marwen. The Witches could mark a return to that family-friendly genre.

Zemeckis’ upcoming Welcome to Marwen is going to release on November 21.
