Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman Returning for ‘Practical Magic’ Sequel

Our Show Times

Get the midnight margaritas ready.

Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are in talks to return for a sequel to the 1998 classic Practical Magic.

Akiva Goldsman, one of the writers behind the original, will pen the screenplay. Plot details are not yet known. Bullock and Kidman are expected to produce alongside Denise Di Novi, who produced the original.

Practical Magic starred Kidman and Bullock as two orphaned sisters who come from a long line of witches. Raised by their eccentric aunts in a prejudiced Massachusetts town, they had to contend with a curse that kept them from never finding love.

At the time of release, the movie received generally negative reviews and failed to make a mark at the box office, but it has achieved cult status among audiences. Since the film’s release, Kidman and Bullock have also become the two biggest stars in Hollywood with awards recognition and box office acclaim.

This isn’t the first time Warners has tried to expand the Practical Magic universe. A prequel series, Rules of Magic, was in the works at HBO Max from Melissa Rosenberg and was described as an epic, generational family drama that is set in 1960s New York City. It would have revolved around three troubled siblings — Franny, Jet and Vincent Owens — who wrestle with “abnormalities” that have kept them isolated.

Bullock was last in theaters with Paramount adventure rom-com The Lost City, grossing over $100 million at the domestic box office. Kidman was most recently onscreen in Amazon series Expats and the Paramount series Lioness from Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan.
