Heads up: Tina Fey is not (I repeat: not) producing or hypothetically starring in a sequel to Hocus Pocus, the 1993 movie where Bette Midler and Carrie Bradshaw are witches. But she is doing something witchy for Disney. Everyone (anyone?) concerned about Tina Fey's witchcraft-related projects can now calmly take a seat.
Earlier today, the internet (read: Twitter; the Hollywood trades) was a flutter when website Tracking Board reported that Fey's production company, Little Stranger, was on board to develop a sequel to the witch movie. Her reps denied any connection to Variety.
Fey is the early stages of a hammering out a deal with Disney to do something about witchery with producer Allison Shearmur, who has a nice closet.
But really, the best part of the whole ordeal were the incredulous tweets!
