CHICAGO – This 18-image slideshow contains the available press images for Walt Disney Pictures’ “Race to Witch Mountain,” starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Carla Gugino, Anna SophiaRobb, Alexander Ludwig, Carla Gugino, Ciaran Hinds, Tom Everett Scott, Chris Marquette, and Billy Brown. The film, directed by Andy Fickman, opens on Friday, March 13th, 2009.

Synopsis: “For years, stories have circulated about a secret place in the middle of the Nevada desert known for unexplained phenomena and strange sightings. It is called Witch Mountain, and when Las Vegas cab driver Jack Bruno (Dwayne Johnson) encounters two teens with supernatural powers in his cab, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of an adventure he can’t explain. Working together, Jack and his young passengers discover that the only chance to save the world lies in unraveling the secrets of Witch Mountain, and the race begins.

Walt Disney Pictures’ “Race to Witch Mountain” marks the Disney reunion of director Andy Fickman (“The Game Plan,” “She’s the Man”) with Dwayne Johnson (“Get Smart,” “The Game Plan”). The producer is Andrew Gunn (“Bedtime Stories,” “Freaky Friday”), with executive producers Mario Iscovich (“The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement”) and Ann Marie Sanderlin (“Freaky Friday”). The film’s screenplay is by Matt Lopez (“Bedtime Stories”) and Mark Bomback (“Live Free or Die Hard”), from a screen story by Matt Lopez based on the book “Escape to Witch Mountain” by Alexander Key. The film is a modern-day re-imagining of Key’s book, which was made into the 1975 Disney classic “Escape to Witch Mountain” and whose characters inspired the 1978 film sequel, “Return
from Witch Mountain.”

Working alongside Johnson is an impressive roster of up-and-comers, as well as some of the industry’s leading talent: AnnaSophia Robb (“Bridge to Terabithia,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”), Carla Gugino (“Night at the Museum,” “Watchmen”), Ciarán Hinds (“There Will Be Blood,” “Munich”), Alexander Ludwig (“The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising”), Tom Everett Scott (“That Thing You Do!,” “ER”), Christopher Marquette (“Just Friends”), Cheech Marin (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” “Cars”), Garry Marshall (“The Simpsons,” “Chicken Little”) and Billy Brown (“Cloverfield,” “Lakeview Terrace”). The cast also includes Kim Richards and Iake Eissinmann,
