"Stronach, who is making her return to the big screen as the titular witch, revealed The Expanse star Shohreh Aghdashloo joins the production in the role of her mother"
"The indie fantasy film is secretly a romantic comedy that gives a nod to the way Stronach and her husband Greg Steinbruner — the film's writer and costar — met, fell in love, and lived happily ever after."
"The family comedy — billed as an homage to the lo-fi fantasy films of the 80s — also stars Sean Astin, Christopher Lloyd, Michael Emerson and Shorhreh Aghdashloo."
"The cast also includes Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”), Shorhreh Aghdashloo (“The Expanse”), Michael Emerson (“Lost”), Pauline McLynn (“Gameface”), Daniel Portman (“Game of Thrones”), comedian Reginald D.

"There was this really important notion of defining for myself what value is, defining for myself what artistic success is, and defining for myself what kind of stories I want to tell," she said. "I was constantly doing plays in New York, so I didn't actually stop acting. I just moved to theater."
"Producers described the movie as a "heartwarming homage" to those charming fantasy films of the Reagan era, and a "comic adventure that both fulfills and subverts the expectations of what a fantasy universe can be."
"...from a script written by Stronach’s husband Greg Steinbruner. On top of starring, Stronach will also be executive producing. The film will also feature puppets for comic roles of the talking sheep, goose, and dog which will be created by The Jim Henson Creature Shop."

"The film, titled Man & Witch, will also star The Goonies’ Sean Astin, Cheers’ Rhea Perlman, and Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd. It’s described as an 'homage to lo-fi fantasy films of the 1980s.' Um, yes please."
