Thanks for joining me for another installment of YA Onscreen. I just got back from a three day bachelorette cruise for a dear friend (So. Much. Champers.), so forgive me if we skip the small talk and jump straight to the links—I’ve got some sleep to catch up on.
The CW has just announced they’re adding a modern-day reboot of Charmed to their next season lineup. I guess I need to stop being surprised every time they try to redo a recent show now, but c’mon—Charmed ended barely a decade ago. What’s next, a reboot of Riverdale in the ‘19-‘20 TV season?
Also, Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper in the original, isn’t exactly thrilled with how the announcement took place, with the article calling it a “fierce, funny, and feminist reboot of the original”.
Get it, Holly.
More remakes we didn’t really ask for: Steven Spielberg is on the hunt for actors and actresses to be in his new project: a remake of West Side Story. I suppose there's a way to make this really good (use actual Puerto Ricans for Puerto Rican roles, get some fantastic singers on board and not just stunt casting *cough*RussellCroweLesMiz*cough*) but...I dunno. I'm just tired. I'd probably see it because I do love the music, so what does that make me?
