Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems Tina Fey is not producing a sequel to "Hocus Pocus."
Deadline has squashed rumors that the "30 Rock" star is attached to a follow-up film that would bring the Sanderson sisters on another Halloween adventure.
According to Deadline, the cause of the confusion was that Fey is simply attached to a different supernatural film involving witches. There’s currently no word on what Fey’s actual project will be.
Tina Fey's publicist confirmed to The Huffington Post that the rumors about her being involved with a "Hocus Pocus" sequel are not true.
Twitter users were (understandably) disappointed by the news. Apparently, some were more crushed than others.
The "Hocus Pocus 2" hubbub began after Hollywood insider site The Tracking Board published a report about the sequel Wednesday. The piece included the following plot synopsis:
The sequel will pick up years after the original, focusing on a housewife who is related to the Sanderson sisters, who teams up with a witch hunter to save her children after they run afoul of some resurrected witches while out trick-or-treating.
The outlet seems to be sticking to the news.
It's unclear whether a "Hocus Pocus 2" project is currently in the works.
This post has been updated to include comments from Tina Fey's publicist.
