“Bewitched” is also getting a remake
The 1960s comedy, which turned 50 last month, is the latest old project to get a remake. “The Vow” writers Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein plan to create modern take on “Bewitched” with the help of Sony Pictures TV. “Bewitched” was already made a failed movie in 2005 with Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell.
