If you’ve been wondering, now you know how producers plan on modernizing this 80’s cult classic!
If there’s one thing Ashley Tisdale is good at, it’s singing, so it’s not a huge shocker that she plans on utilizing her pipes in the upcoming Teen Witch remake.
“In the original, you know, Robin Lively didn’t sing at all, even though other girls performed. But the studio said ‘Hey, you’re a singer, right?’” the High School Musical starlet confirmed to HollywoodLife.com at Burberry’s digital 3-D Autumn/Winter 2010 show in Los Angeles Feb. 23. “They reworked the script so it can be more of a musical,” she additionally revealed.
Though the script will be reworked, we’ll still find Ashley, 24, portraying shy high school wallflower Louise, who learns she’s a descendant of the infamous Salem witches. She then uses her powers for good over evil – namely, in high school world – to make herself popular and get the guy she wants.
But will the film still possess the silly, campy vibe that made us love the original cult hit so much? Ashley says yes – and that her version will definitely please a new generation. “The plan is to start filming at the end of the year, so you can expect it will be a lot more modern than the original,” she told us.
We can’t wait! And frankly, neither can she. “I’m really excited about it. I think it’s going to be so much fun!” she exclaimed, adding, “Fans of the original will love it I think, and as far as it being different, I can tell you it will be a lot more current.”
