Sony Pictures is set to re-imagine "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" reports Deadline.

The teen witch originated in 60's Archie Comics and was previously adapted into several animated series, however its more familiar onscreen incarnation is the live-action sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart.

This new live-action feature version recasts Sabrina as a superhero and will essentially be an origin story "about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers".

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari penned the script while Don Murphy and Susan Montford are producing. Mark Waters might direct depending on scheduling.
