There’s a new Grand High Witch who will be making her debut soon. Following her role in Serenity and Ocean’s 8, Anne Hathaway will now star in Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches, EW has learned.

In the original film, released in 1990, a boy discovers witches are for real and they do not like children most of all. Anjelica Huston portrayed the Grand High Witch, the leader of all earthly witches, and now Hathaway will succeed the actress in the latest cinematic retelling of Dahl’s 1973 novel.

Zemeckis is going to direct and write the film, which he’ll also produce with Jack Rapke, Guillermo Del Toro, and Alfonso Cuarón.

Huston previously told EW that director Nicolas Roeg “made the ultimate Witches” with the first movie, but it’s not a sentiment. According to Variety, which was the first to report the news of Hathaway’s casting, Zemeckis’ take on The Witches will skew closer to the source material.

Robert Zemeckis is directed by Nicolas Roeg. The film stars Anjelica Huston, Jasen Fisher, Mai Zetterling, Rowan Atkinson, Brenda Blethyn, Jane Horrocks.
