She’s an Oscar winner about to appear in a reboot of a beloved children’s fantasy film, in a timeless role made famous by Anjelica Huston. 

The Witches star Anne Hathaway was spotted near the beach in Connecticut on Sunday, in a casual getup as she carted a bunch of baskets and towels on her own.

Hathaway, 37, donned a floppy straw hat, oversized blue beach shirt and colorful sandals for the outing.

The mother-of-two is set to appear in Robert Zemeckis’s The Witches this October – a remake of the classic 1990 film by Nicolas Roeg, which itself was an adaptation of the Roald Dahl children’s story. 

Hathaway will be playing the role of the Grand High Witch, a fabulously sexy and seductive woman who deep down is a hideous hag whose primary desire is to murder children.

Chris Rock is also slated to appear in the new iteration of the film, the poster for which is now visible on IMDb.com.
