Sabrina The Teenage Witch is apparently set for a superhero makeover.

The Archie Comics teen witch - well known to audiences from the sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart - has also featured in animated TV series in 1969, 1971, and 1999, and is now set to appear on the big screen, Deadline reports.

It's thought that the film will have an edgier tone than previous incarnations - but Salem, the talking black cat, will still star.

Real Steel producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford are set to produce and Mean Girls' Mark Waters may direct depending on scheduling.

The Melissa Joan Hart sitcom ran for seven seasons, from 1996 to 2003, when it was axed after waning viewing figures.
