Sabrina At The Movies!!
We have two shows in our family that are loved by every family member - Dance Academy, liked by Surfer Boy but obsessively loved by the rest of us, and the fabulous Sabrina The Teenage Witch which has been a family favourite for years and is on constant rotation we own every season and on any given day of the week there will be a Sabrina episode playing. We even have a black cat, scarily similar to Salem, who watches with us!
Imagine how excited I was this morning to discover that Sabrina is going to become a MOVIE!!!
Sabrina began her life as a precocious teen witch in the 1960s comics, and was famously played by Melissa Joan Hart in the 90s sitcom. In the movie version Sabrina will be recast as a superhero.
The film will be “an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man, about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers.”
Everyone’s favorite talking cat Salem will be back for the film, who here is “a transformed prince creating unique love stories for Sabrina.”
Sony Pictures is helming the film with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who wrote the upcoming flick Die in a Gunfight, writing the script.
My main concern, of course, is who are they going to get to play Sabrina? How do you follow up from the wonderful Melissa Joan Hart? And please God don't forget Harvey - Sabrina is lost without Harvey. Who would be your pick to play the lovably crazy teen witch?
