Deadline reports that Sony Pictures will be turning “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” into a superhero for a new live-action film. Created by George Cladir and artist Dan DeCarlo, “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” is a comic book series published by Archie Comics and follows the adventures of Sabrina Spellman.

The site says the movie “will be an origin story in the vein of Spider-Man, about a young girl coming to terms with her remarkable powers.”

Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari will write the script, with Don Murphy and Susan Montford producing. Mark Waters may direct the project depending on scheduling. Archie Comics’ Jon Goldwater will be executive producer and Jeff Stockwell will be co-producer.

“Sabrina the Teenage Witch” has been turned into animated TV series and also the live-action TV series starring Melissa Joan Hart.
