Melissa Joan eat your Hart out!

Sabrina The Teenage Witch is coming to The CW, and it sounds just as dark and delicious as you'd hope!

Just as the original Teenage Witch was a spinoff of Archie Comics, this reboot will be a sister series to edgy new hit Riverdale.

Speaking of edge, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, based on the comic book reimagining that began in 2014, will be a full-on horror show!

In the comic Sabrina, the daughter of a human woman and a warlock, grows up in a coven but also tries to live as a normal teenage girl — while battling the forces of evil.

According to Warner Bros.' press release, the potential companion piece for Riverdale's 2018-2019 season will be less like the TGIF sitcom and more like Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist.

Sounds like a great take to us! What do YOU think??

P.S. We bet MJH is glad this came out today.

Dang, Warner Bros is not kidding around when it comes to their new Joker movie!

According to sources spilling to The Hollywood Reporter, the Batman villain standalone movie could suddenly look like a real draw thanks to a bona fide Oscar-winning lead: Leonardo DiCaprio!

We were surprised to see Martin Scorsese's name listed among producers for the upcoming DC Comics spinoff flick, but these new whispers may tell the reason why — he's reportedly being courted to bring on board his favorite collaborator. Leo has starred in several Scorsese films, including The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Departed with former Joker Jack Nicholson.

The pair's pedigree would seem to show Warner's intent to elevate the project to something award-worthy. Not sure how Hangover III director Todd Phillips fits in there, but whatevs.

Leo as the Joker. Huh. You know, thinking of his devilish smirk in Django Unchained, we can actually see that as potentially working really well.

But what do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Tell us (below):

This is horrible!

A stuntwoman was killed after a motorcycle accident while filming a scene for Deadpool 2 in Vancouver on Monday.

According to witnesses, the performer was filming a scene when she lost control of the bike, jumped the curb, and crashed through the window of Shaw Tower. Witnesses say it doesn't look like she ever applied the brakes.
