If The Original Hocus Pocus Stars Want a Sequel, Why Are We Getting a Remake?!
by TIERNEY BRICKER | Thu, Sep 28, 2017 4:13 PM
SNAP/REX ShutterstockRemakes, of course, are one of the hottest trends in TV these days. We get that. Disney Channel gets that, having recently revamped Adventures in Babysitting. What is confusing us about this particular remake is that many of the original film’s stars have gone on-record about how much they would love to do a sequel.So then why not do it? Especially when the head witch in charge herself, Bette Midler (Winifred), has expressed interest in reprising her iconic character. “You don’t get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we’re having a blast,” Midler told Billboard in October 2016 about the film. “For the life of me, I can’t understand why there’s not a sequel.”Same, sister-witch. Same.And in 2014, SJP and Kathy Najimy said they were down to join a sequel after Midler addressed the topic in a Reddit AMA.
“Hocus people, Bette says it best. Listen to your elders.!,” wrote Najimy, linking to an article reporting Midler’s call for a sequel. And when Buzzfeed asked Parker if she would be down to participate and she responded on Twitter with a simple, “Yep I’m in.”So again, we must ask: why aren’t we getting a sequel?Listen, we’re not even as upset as some people are over the remake news, with our childhoods firmly intact, because it’s not like we don’t have access to the original. It’s still regarded as one of the best Halloween movies ever made. It hasn’t been forgotten. Freeform is literally running an all-day marathon of the beloved movie on Halloween.”Generation after generation, it’s kind of remarkable and fantastic to have something brought to the screen like that and to have it embraced generation after generation,” Mick Garris, one of the original screenwriters, told Forbes on Hocus Pocus‘ lasting impact. “Everybody I meet, it’s either their daughters or their own favorite movie and it’s incredibly exciting.” And when Garris addressed sequel rumors, he said it would be a mistake not to do it with the original’s three bewitching leads.”If they don’t do that I think it would be a big mistake because all three of them are still so incredibly potent and powerful and great performers and who else can recreate those characters?”This is going to be the remake’s biggest problem: recreating the on-screen magic of Midler, Najimy and Parker, who were clearly having wicked fun in the campy roles. Another huge issue? The writer, The Royals‘ Scarlett Lacey, is likely going to have to tone down some elements of the original to work on Disney Channel.
Sometime tells us we won’t be seeing a yabbos-loving virgin lighting a candle on Disney Channel.

Rex Reed has had his share of difficult and embarrasing interviews. Some he has detailed in his newest book, People Are Crazy Here (Delacorte Press, $7.95). His most hostile subject was George Sanders. “Imagine being called to interview someone who doesn’t want to be interviewed, who hates you for infringing on his time and who is lying in bed fully clothed in a suit, threatening you the whole time with a cane!” Then there was Bette Midler, whom Rex would just as soon forget. “She sat on the toilet while I interviewed her. I tried to act big about the whole thing, look away and say, ‘Now, my next question is . .. ‘

Bette Midler tweets a cheeky anti-ageing dig at Ivanka and Trump
April 29, 2017
Bette Midler has never held back with her thoughts on Donald Trump’s presidency.
The funny lady has made plenty of criticisms of Trump’s policies and personality, and the billionaire leader has been no fan of hers in the past either, tweeting that she “sucked” when singing Wind Beneath My Winds at the 2014 Oscars.
But Midler has branched out a little in her latest tweet, taking a dig at Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who’s taken an office in the White House as an unpaid special adviser to her father, the president. The funny tweet got retweeted almost 3,000 times in just a few hours, as Midler’s followers wholeheartedly agreed with her sentiments.

Huckabee to Hollywood: Lay Off Trump or Risk Going Broke
By Bill Hoffmann | Friday, 30 Dec 2016 01:07 PM
“If snarky late night comics and pompous music stars keep alienating their audiences with angry, leftist political diatribes, they might eventually find themselves performing on street corners for spare change, next to some smelly guy who’s been out there holding a sign reading ‘The World Is Coming To An End’ since 1981,” the former Arkansas governor said on his Facebook page late Thursday.

The show has run into some roadblocks as part of that effort, however. A proposed advertisement set to run on the front page of a special â€œFor Presidentâ€ section in the New York Times on Tuesday was rejected by the newspaper. The special sectionâ€™s front page, which features profiles on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, was slated to have an ad in bright red at the bottom with an all caps â€œIT TAKES A WOMAN,â€ the title of one of the songs from the show.
