Blumhouse Rejected CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA
“You say Witch like it’s a bad thing” is the tagline for the newly released trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka stars in this coming of age horror tale which is based more off its comic series than the 90’s television comedy which starred Melissa Joan Hart. The show is set to be released on Netflix on October 26th. Perfect show to binge for Halloween weekend.
Before the streaming giant got its hands on the Spellman family, did you know that creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wanted to make it into a horror film with Blumhouse?
“For a long time I was trying to get Sabrina done as a low-budget horror movie for Jason Blum [of Blumhouse Productions], and even wrote a screenplay with a friend,” Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Weekly. “Strangely, though it’s very different from the show, it did center on her 16th birthday.Ultimately, Jason didn’t want to pursue that, and thank goodness because we’re getting to do this as a TV show, which feels right.””
