'Bewitched' Movie in Development at Sony
Sony Pictures is in early development on a new adaptation of
the classic sitcom "Bewitched," starring Elizabeth Montgomery.
Montgomery starred for eight seasons as Samantha Stephens, a
witch married to an ordinary man named Darrin (Dick York and
later Dick Sargent) and whose magical powers often cause -
yet, sometimes solve - a few wrinkles in her life as a
typical suburban housewife.
Created by Sol Saks, under executive producer Harry Ackerman,
"Bewitched" ran from 1964 to 1972 on ABC and was a defining
example of the genre. Its spinoff, "Tabitha" (focused on
Samantha and Darren's daughter), ran for one season.
The new film comes from producers John Davis and John Fox
("Dolemite Is My Name," "Game Night") with a script written
by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett ("12 Monkeys,"
"MacGyver"). Matalas has an overall deal at CBS and is
currently co-running "Star Trek: Picard." The quartet is
also developing the "Witch Mountain" remake for Disney Plus.
Notably, this is not Sony's first film adaptation of the
series. In 2005, the studio released "Bewitched," a
romantic-comedy from writer-director Nora Ephron, starring
Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell as actors playing Samantha
and Darrin on a remake of the classic television show.
Since its finale in 1972, "Bewitched" has been a beloved
hallmark of the sitcom genre, most recently referenced in
Marvel's Disney Plus series "WandaVision," which used the
show as inspiration for its early episodes.
Matalas and Fickett are repped by ICM Partners and
AJ Brandenstein at Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern. Matalas
is also repped by David Kanter at Anonymous Content.
