Hocus Pocus: Tina Fey Producing, Potentially Starring in Sequel — Report
We want to go to there! The Tracking Boardreports that Tina Fey will spearhead a sequel to the bewitching 1993 comedy Hocus Pocus through her production company, Little Stranger.
Since the 30 Rock veteran is as good an actress in front of the camera as she is a writer-producer behind, there's a good chance that she'll appear in the film, as well — assuming this report is true, of course.
The original film starred Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy as a trio of 17th-century witch sisters accidentally summoned to modern-day Salem by a group of teenagers (played by Thora Birch, Omri Katz, and Vinessa Shaw).
Though the movie fell flat with critics and at the box office, it has become a cult classic in the past 20 years.
The Tracking Board claims that the new film will follow a housewife (who is somehow related to the original witches) who teams up with a witch hunter to find the devilish ladies who have absconded with her trick-or-treating children.
Tina has certainly been keeping herself plenty busy recently — she stars in September's family dramedy This Is Where I Leave You, she's filming comedy The Nest with bestie Amy Poehler, and she co-created the upcoming NBC laughfest Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
We're hoping she really is involved — she always casts a spell on moviegoers!
