The Rock set for ‘Witch Mountain’

Actor to star in Disney followup

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in “Witch Mountain” for Walt Disney Pictures. Andy Fickman is directing, and the studio will begin production in March.

Johnson, who just teamed with Fickman in the Disney family comedy “The Game Plan,” is in negotiations to play a Las Vegas cab driver who picks up a pair of siblings with magical powers. Plot advances the storyline from the original “Escape to Witch Mountain,” which Disney released in 1975.

Andrew Gunn produces through his Gunn Films shingle, and Ann Marie Sanderlin is exec producer. Matt Lopez wrote the most recent draft.

Johnson, who most recently starred in the drama “Gridiron Gang,” stars next summer alongside Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway in “Get Smart” for Warner Bros.

He’s repped by UTA.
