“Sabrina, The Teenage Witch” To Become a Live-Action Superhero Film, I Kid You Not

"Sabrina The Teenage Witch" has taken a lot of shapes throughout the years. It debuted as a part of the Archie Comic universe in the 60s, went on to become an animated TV show in 1969, 1971, and 1999, and gave Melissa Joan Hart her second television series when it became a sitcom in 1996. But never before has the character been a superhero... Until now.

Until now.

Deadline is reporting that Sabrina is getting an entirely new makeover for the big screen.  The character “is being recast as a superhero. The live action film will be an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man, about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers.”

REEL STEEL producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford are producing, while Mark Waters (MEAN GIRLS, MR POPPERS PENGUINS) is in talks to direct.  As for the star of the movie, Murphy and Montford feel that this could be a great opportunity to discover an unknown actress for the role.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about Salem, the cat…

“While the tone of the movie will be edgier, they are keeping her talking black cat Salem, who here is a transformed prince creating unique love stories for Sabrina.”

Well that’s interesting…
