It seemed like a storybook romance: Fan favorite director Edgar Wright was going to bring his beloved Ant-Man project to life, and the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe was supposed to be the better for it. When that relationship fell through because of control issues Wright apparently wasn’t willing to give up, we’ve read nothing but taboo reports about the awkward enterprise. With Wright’s exit, so went cinematographer Bill Pope. Enter Adam McKay to write the movie Marvel wants. You may know him from the hit-and-miss Anchorman series and such short films as A Public Statement from Anthony Weiner’s Penis. Now, before you go questioning his action movie chops, keep in mind that the movie is supposed to be funny too. He’s got history with star Paul Rudd and an aptitude for writing comedy. But how’s the script? It might be a problem that Marvel is working tirelessly to fix…

Created in the 1960’s, Sabrina The Teenage Witch was originally nothing more than a one-shot in an issue of Archie comics, but has since then spawned into franchise hit. After three incarnations as an animated series, a seven year live action show – starring the still spankable Melissa Joan Hart – and two TV movies, the witch is back! Only with one subtle difference…

According to Deadline, Sabrina The Teenage Witch will be rebooted to the big screen as a magic-casting superhero! Under the direction of Sony Pictures, this updated tale is going to be a spin on the classic Spider-Man tale with the young Sabrina Spellman coming to terms with her blossoming powers. Odds are they be setting this in high school too, nothing says “dramatic action” than learning you’re a witch in the middle of prom, cheerleader practice or whatever teenagers do between texting.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins director Mark Waters is in talks to direct the Sony Pictures reboot, with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari writing the script and Real Steel producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford as producers. No actresses are currently being eyed to star as Sabrina, although rumor is they plan on going with an unknown talent.

What do you think of Sony making a reboot? Any ideas on just who should star as Sabrina? Let’s here your predictions.
