Sounds About Right: SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH as a Live-Action Superhero

What I know about Sabrina The Teenage Witch can be summed up in four letters, T.G.I.F.  It was part of the Friday night block of family shows on ABC and it just so happened to play after one of my favorite shows, Boy Meets World.  So when word came down that Sony is planning an “edgy” reboot as a live-action film that will recast the female character as a superhero, I was less than enthused.

Deadline says the film will be an origin story of Sabrina “about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers.”  Mark Waters, who directed Mean Girls worked on the presentation for Sony and could direct.

FYI: The ZIP code for Sabrina’s town of Westbridge, Massachusetts is 01970, the same ZIP code for Salem, Massachusetts, the “Witch City”.  Oooooh
