Hollywoodnews.com: Can “Catweazle” find an audience in the States?

We’re going to find out soon enough, as a planned adaptation of the popular book and television series, which earned huge U.K. audiences and spread its influence over more than 50 countries, is moving forward, according to THR.

The series, created by Richard Carpenter, centered around a crotchety old wizard named Catweazle, who accidentally travels back to 1969 and, with the help of a young boy named Carrot, tries to figure out how to get home.

THR reports that BAFTA winner John Henderson (“The Borrowers”) will direct the feature for
Intandem Films.

Intandem director Andrew Brown described Catweazle as “a classic and timeless ‘fish out of water’ story and will be a delightful, modern family romp.”

More on “Catweazle” casting and release dates as they develop.
