Original Witch Mountain kids return


FRom darkhorizons, Kim Richards ("Black Snake Moan") and Ike Eisenmann ("Howl's Moving Castle"), the original kid stars of Disney's 1970s "Witch Mountain" movies, have joined the cast of Disney's remake "Race to Witch Mountain" says Reuters.

In a nod to the original movies, Eisenmann plays a sheriff and Richards plays a waitress at a roadhouse called Ray's in a town called Stony Creek. They help a cabbie (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) and his two paranormal-powered passengers (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig).

Tom Everett Scott, Chris Marquette, Billy Brown and Cheech Marin also recently joined the production which Andy Fickman is helming.

Scott is playing a medical specialist, Marquette is a computer specialist, and Brown is a military specialist working for the bad guy (Ciaran Hinds). Marin plays a helpful mechanic.

Man, those Witch Mountain movies made me want to have telekinesis SO bad. I also got a little crushed out on the girl in the second one (Return from Witch Mountain -- with Christopher Lee!). Years later I saw it again and I couldn't believe how low-rent it is, having been filmed in various blah locations around LA.
