GDT to direct Roald Dahl's "The Witches"

GDT to direct and Alfonso Cuoron to produce a re-do of the fantastic novel "The Witches", where a small boy gets trapped in a hotel while the annual convention of witches is taking place.

Cuoron states "It won’t be like the original Nicolas Roeg version, which was a beautiful film," because (and this is the very exciting part), del Toro plans to "do it completely in stop-motion animation....Guillermo wrote this amazing screenplay really quickly".

Here's a clip from the original film
