Well, it was just yesterday that we reported on something interesting Hocus Pocus writer/master of horror Mick Garris said about a potential sequel to the 1993 classic.
“There have been rumors of a Hocus Pocus sequel for the last 10 years that will not die,” Garris told Forbes. “I have heard they are developing the script, I haven’t been involved in it but I think there will be a sequel it might be for Disney Channel or Freeform or ABC. I think it will be for television but I hear that it is moving ahead.”
As it turns out, Garris was *kind of* correct. Deadline reports today that the Sanderson sisters are indeed coming back, albeit in the form of a TV REMAKE.
The site notes that Disney Channel is in the early stages of remaking Hocus Pocus as a TV movie, with a new cast. Scarlett Lacey (The Royals) is writing the reimagining, with David Kirschner, producer of the original movie, on the executive producing team.
Kenny Ortega, director of Hocus Pocus, is not involved.
