'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' to Get Superhero-Style Big Screen Treatment


The Archie Comics popular teenage witch story will soon be adapted into a live-action movie, which is planned to be in the vein of Spider-Man.

Iconic 1960s comic series, "Sabrina the Teenage Witch", will get a big screen treatment once again. It was Deadline which broke the news that Sony Pictures is currently developing the live-action take on the popular Archie Comics' story.

According to the report, the upcoming "Sabrina" reboot is being revamped as a superhero-style movie. The film will be "an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man, about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers."

The project has already tapped screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari to provide the script. Serving as the producers are Don Murphy and Susan Montford, who also worked to produce "Real Steel". As for the helmer, Mark Waters is eyed to serve behind the lens, but his involvement in the project will depend on his schedule.

"Sabrina the Teenage Witch" has been adapted into animated TV series in 1969, 1971 and 1999. In the 1990s, the story was turned into a sitcom which starred Melissa Joan Hart as the titular young witch. A film adaptation based on the TV series was made in 1996.

As for the upcoming "Sabrina" film, which is said to be "edgier", the project has become a priority for Sony as the studio plans to move fast with the negotiations to find the lead actress.
