Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann, the original kid stars of Disney's 1970s Witch Mountain movies, are coming back for Race to Witch Mountain, the studio's re-imagining of the adventure tales that will star Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

Tom Everett Scott, Chris Marquette, Billy Brown and Cheech Marin also are joining the production, which is filming under director Andy Fickman. Andrew Gunn is producing.

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 (Johnson) and his two paranormal-powered passengers (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig).

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.

Richards appeared in Black Snake Moan, and Eisenmann did voice work for Howl's Moving Castle.
