“The Witches” Add Octavia Spencer To The Cast6 days ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Octavia Spencer has just been added to The Witches movie adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel. The Oscar winning actress will be alongside Anne Hathaway. In addition, Jahzir Bruno and Codie-Lei Eastick may be joining the cast.
Spencer has been featured in cultural changing films such as The Shape of Water, Hidden Figures and The Help. She also executive produced Green Brook. She will be taking on the role of Bruno’s grandmother.
The Witches revolves around Dahl’s 1983 book, where a boy and his grandmother ward of the witches of England. This doesn’t depict them as they do in fairy tales, the film emphasizes on real witches and how they are “vile, cunning, destestable creatures who disguise themselves as nice, ordinary ladies.”
