'Sabrina The Teenage Witch': Live Action Superhero Movie?

Get ready for a blast from your past – Sabrina The Teenage Witch will hit the big screen in a live action superhero flick!

The precocious teen witch from the 1960s comics, who was famously played by Melissa Joan Hart in the 90s sitcom, will be recast as a superhero, according to Deadline.

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.

WHO DO YOU THINK should play the superhero version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch?

I think it s a great idea, and Zendaya should play Sabrina. She’s amazingly talented, and would be perfect for the role.

This sounds like a terrible idea. Like a dumb LifeTime movie at best.
That being said I think Emma Stone could handle the comedy and be the most believable.

this is bad idea of the century they should do a sabrina movie but with melissa joan hart.. it would be the best movie ever

worst idea ever:(((
but if i have to choose someone i guess riley keough

@Lou: You just read my mind.

Stop ruining my childhood, and come up with something original.

It can be a bad idea to remake it… but i i think Hilary duff would be perfect in this role.

I am not opposed to remakes in general, nor am I opposed to a new Sabrina, but they need to keep it within the source material. Sabrina is a comedy, not a superhero action movie. Hollywood believes that they can take anything, and make it ‘edgy’ and it will work, but that is wrong.

If they can’t make it as a comedy, they shouldn’t make it at all.
