Bewitched: Tina Fey Gets Supernatural for Disney
It looks like Disney has fallen under Tina Fey’s spell.
The 30 Rock riot will star in, and produce, a supernatural, witch-themed movie for the company. Sanderson sisters fans are cautioned not to get their hopes up, though. A source has confirmed to Deadline that the movie, dubbed the “Untitled Witch Project,” will not pick up where 1993’s Hocus Pocus left off. Though rumors have surfaced that a reboot of the Bette Midler–Sarah Jessica Parkercomedy is likely, reports say Fey’s film will “[fall] in the vein of Ghostbusters.”
Fey, who is currently filming The Nest with bestie Amy Poehler, will produce the family-friendly witch tale alongside Allison Shearmur, the executive producer behind Disney’s 2015 live-action Cinderella. Both will be a departure from Fey’s other project, a wartime dark comedy titled The Taliban Shuffle.
