Disney Channel Plans “Babysitting” Sequel

Sabrina Carpenter (“Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (“Disney’s Descendants”) are set to star in “Further Adventures in Babysitting,” a Disney Channel original telemovie said to be “inspired by” Chris Columbus’ 1987 comedy classic “Adventures in Babysitting” (aka. “A Night on the Town”).

The original starred Elizabeth Shue as a babysitter who winds up getting into some crazy situations with three kids she’s supposed to be babysitting. While it performed only so-so at the box-office, it became a big hit on video and TV. These days it’s seen as a seminal film of the decade like “The Goonies” and “The Breakfast Club”.

An attempt was made back in 2007 to remake it with Raven Symone, that version thankfully fell through. This telemovie take will be penned by Tiffany Paulsen (“Nancy Drew”) and deals with two competing babysitters who go on the hunt for a missing child.

From the sounds of it, the story it not only different but it will also likely lack the dark and more adult edge that differed it to other family films of the time and made it such an iconic classic.
