Why Hollywood won’t cast Melissa Joan Hart anymore

0

Melissa Joan Hart isn’t too eager to reprise her iconic role as the titular Sabrina the Teenage Witch, even though the show recently celebrated its 20th anniversary of the premiere. “There’s a lot of talk about a Sabrina reboot,” she told E! News. “I feel like almost every day, somebody’s calling me about it. Would we do it? Should we do it? How do we do it? I think the thing about reboots is they’re really hard to do. They’re hard to do right. I think sometimes it’s better to just leave it in the past unless you do it really, really great.”

However, Hart was a little more willing to throw back to her first lead role on TV as the titular character in Clarissa Explains It All, as long as the story was good. She told Entertainment Weekly, “I just had a meeting with my agents where we were discussing the possibility of that, but that’s really up to Nickelodeon; I think they still hold the cards for that. It would depend on what the deal was, and it would depend on the situation and the character, like how is she used, who’s going to write it, because it’s got to be done right; if you do it wrong it’s just a bummer. It can’t just be slopped together because some fans might watch it.”

She added, “I’d be open to it. I don’t want to say no, but at the same time I’m not too thrilled about the idea; as with any reboot, it has to really be done right. I think with Fuller House, they’ve taken a great approach with it. I’ll never say never, but it would have to be a very interesting scenario.”
