The co-star of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens in 'High School Musical' franchise is in talks with United Artist to star in 'Teen Witch' remake.
One of the stars from the Disney's hit series "High School Musical", Ashley Tisdale, has been rumored to set her eye for a witch role. According to Hollywood Reporter, the 22-year-old rising starlet has been negotiating to star in a remake of 1989 film, "Teen Witch".
Though the original film was a fantasy musical film, it has yet to be confirmed whether Tisdale will get a singing role like in the three installments of "HSM" or not. Further, if the talks between the actress/singer's camp and United Actress reach a deal, Tisdale is presumably going to portray the leading character Louise Miller, an unpopular high school teenager with the power of Salem's witch.
Tisdale has just wrapped up shooting for the 20th Century Fox's flick "They Came from Upstairs". She is now gearing up to reprise her role as the spoiled rich girl Sharpay Evans in the third installment of "HSM" franchise, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year". Aside from that, she is also rumored to be considering a producer role in a reality show as she is said to be in talks with FremantleMedia North America, the production company behind "American Idol", to settle a one-year contract.
