Hocus Pocus sequel happening with brilliant producer

Tina Fey is reportedly producing Hocus Pocus 2 but who’s going to star?

hocus-pocusA sequel to the Disney classic Hocus Pocus is reportedly in production with the brilliant Tina Fey attached as producer.

The Tracking Board reports that Fey will produce the film through her Little Stranger Productions company, although notes that things are still at a very early stage.

“The sequel will pick up years after the original, focusing on a housewife who is related to the Sanderson sisters, who teams up with a witch hunter to save her children after they run afoul of some resurrected witches while out trick-or-treating.”

No actors have been confirmed for the film, so we don’t know if Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy will return. The site suggests that the studio are looking for a “Tina Fey-type” and a “Melissa McCarthy-type” to play the housewife and the witch hunter.
