LOS ANGELES, Nov 1 — A Hocus Pocus remake may be in the works yet Bette Midler isn’t a fan already.
The actress who played witch Winifred Sanderson in the original 1993 film told People that she is not impressed that Disney Channel is remaking the Halloween classic.
“I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap!
“I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”
A reimagining of the cult classic, that also starred Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as witches, was announced by the Disney Channel in September.
The remake is being written by Scarlett Lacey with original producer David Kirschner signed on for the project.
