Los Angeles: Kate Winslet, Jim Broadbent, Ruby Barnhill, Louis Ashbourne Serkis and Ewen Bremner will voice the English-language version of Japanese anime fantasy film 'Mary and the Witch's Flower'.

The original film was the first feature from Studio Ponoc, the anime house founded by former Studio Ghibli director Hiromasa Yonebayashi and producer Yoshiaki Nishimura, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Yonebayashi, who helmed Oscar-nominated 'When Marnie Was There' and worked on Hayao Miyazaki's biggest hits.

'Mary and the Witch's Flower' has taken more than USD 27 million at the Japanese box office since it opened on July 8.

Based on 'The Little Broomstick' by British children's author Mary Stewart, the anime follows the adventures of a girl in a school of magic.

The English screenplay adaptation was written by David Freedman and Lynda Freedman.
