“High School Musical” star Ashley Tisdale has set up a first-look deal with “American Idol” producers FremantleMedia North America and is also in talks with United Artists to star in a remake of the 1989 movie Teen Witch.
Under the one-year deal with FremantleMedia, which is close to being signed, the production company will look to develop TV projects revolving around Tisdale.
As for Teen Witch, Tisdale would play Louise Miller, the unpopular girl who discovers that she’s a descendant of witches — and possesses powers. Robyn Lively starred in the original film. A script has not yet been written for the remake.
