Date: 6th January 2004
Nicole Kidman is close to signing a deal for the lead role in Bewitched, the big screen adaptation of the 60s TV series.
Kidman would play Samantha, a housewife, mother and witch, famous for her domestic mishaps and broomstick rides.
Old School's Will Ferrell has apparently signed on as Samantha's husband Darrin after early contender Jim Carrey dropped out, reports Empire Online.
Written and directed by romantic comedy stalwart Nora Ephron, filming is scheduled to begin in April.
