Sony Is Making A Sabrina The Teenage Witch Movie Where Sabrina Is A Superhero

Whether your mind first jumps to the original Archie Comics, the numerous animated series, or the live-action ABC sitcom, fans of Sabrina the Teenage Witch listen up. Sony Pictures is developing a live-action film where Sabrina will get a Spider-Man-like origin story and use her powers like a superhero. I think my nose is twitching. Oh wait, wrong witch.

Cartoon Network Is Making a Captain Planet Movie

We. Were. Just. Talking about this.

In fact, I’ve been wondering for quite a while now when somebody was going to bring back Captain Planet. If big-budget live-action Transformers movies can, in spite of a lack of any narrative worth, consistently perform feats of box office mastery; if we can have a new My Little Pony series that captivates the internet; if we can keep rebooting The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles until one finally sticks; if Thundercats is premiering at the end of this month; then why on Earth hasn’t anyone picked up Captain Planet?

Producer Threatens World With Second Transformers Trilogy

What happens next? Certainly not a reboot. We haven’t lost the Transformers. They didn’t grow up or become expensive like Toby Maguire. I don’t know what happens next. I’m pretty sure there will be a second trilogy. I am pretty sure it will kick ass. And I am pretty sure some of you will hate it because it wasn’t all bots.”Don Murphy, producer behind the last three Transformers movies.

Well, we’ll see how that goes, since, according to Shia LeBeouf, he and Michael Bay are out of the robots in disguise business. Oh, and we’ll hate it if it’s bad, and then probably hate it even more if it, against all expectation, makes almost $500 million in its first eight days.

Also, us… what is up with that completely random dig at the Spider-Man movies? Or is he just insulting Toby Maguire? I can’t even tell.

Guillermo Del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness Starts Filming in June

In case you were worried that Guillermo Del Toro‘s film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft‘s At the Mountains of Madness, was just a crazed fever dream you had several months ago, set your fears aside. It’s going to start filming in June.

Producer Don Murphy (Transformers) confirmed the shoot date, though not much else is known about the production. James Cameron is also tapped to produce, and Tom Cruise and Ron Perlman are the only listed members of the cast. (Perlman confirmed his involvement in January; his character did not appear in the original novel, but will be a “no-nonsense dog sled guy.”

Cameron says that this will be an “epically scaled horror movie,” and added, “The fans certainly won’t want for a visual feast with this film.” That’s pretty promising coming from the guy responsible for Aliens.
