Sony Pictures is giving Sabrina the Teenage Witch a makeover as the teen witch that originally made her entrance in the sixties as part of Archie Comics will soon be on the big screen taking on the role of a superhero. The film is supposedly going to be told in a Spider-Man fashion and portray a young girl that is forced to come to terms with the fact that she has some very supernatural powers.
Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer wrote the script for the film and Susan Montford and Don Murphy will be producing once the screenwriters polish it up a bit. Depending on when the scheduling for the film is set for Mark Waters might be directing. The executive producer seat will belong to Jon Goldwater from Archie Comics and Jeff Stockwell will be his co-producer.
The tale of Sabrina has been turned into an animated television series three times throughout the last few decades and in the nineties it was turned into a Melissa Joan Hart sitcom that fared remarkably well. Although the movie is said to be a bit edgier, Salem the black cat will stick around, although he is going to be a prince that was transformed into a cat instead of an uncle paying penance for a crime.
