Sony Pictures has reportedly begun developing a new film adaptation of the classic Elizabeth Montgomery-led sitcom “Bewitched”.
“12 Monkeys” and “MacGyver” series showrunners Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett will write the script while John Davis and John Fox are producing.
The new take won’t be a muddled meta rom-com like Nora Ephron’s 2005 film starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. That version was released to poor reviews.
This one is a more straightforward adaptation about a witch who marries an advertising executive and then tries to hide her powers while her crazy relatives drop in often.
Matalas and Fickett are currently developing the “Witch Mountain” remake for the Disney+ service while Matalas is also co-running “Star Trek: Picard” for the Paramount+ service.
