'Sabrina The Teenage Witch' set for Hollywood reboot
Producers of 'Real Steel' are to oversee the resurrection of the young sorceress
Sabrina The Teenage Witch is set to receive a Hollywood reboot, according to reports today (April 12). The show, which most famously ran for seven seasons from 1996-2003 and starred Melissa Joan Hart, has also been screened as an animated series for three separate runs. It tells the story of a teenage girl struggling to come to terms with the fact that she has magical powers.
According to Deadline, the reboot will be written by Die In A Gunfight scribes Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari and will be overseen by Real Steel producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford.
The report also suggests that the character of Salem, who was a cat in the recent TV series, will take the form of a handsome prince in the new adaptation. He will reportedly create a series of unique love stories for Sabrina during the film.
There are no reports of any actress being attached to the role of Sabrina as yet.
