Ashley Tisdale As the Teen Witch? Who Should "Top That"?

Ashley Tisdale As the Teen Witch? Who Should "Top That"?

OK, putting aside for a moment how much I so thoroughly can't imagine Teen Witch being palatable outside of the 1980s — even more so than most of the remakes being done these days — I am curious about the casting for it. Apparently, High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale may take on the role of Louise Miller, "the unpopular girl who discovers that she's a descendant of witches — and possesses powers" in a remake of the 1989 flick.

The original Louise Miller was played by Robyn Lively, and if they have to move forward with this project, why not keep it in the family and cast Robyn's sister, Blake Lively of Gossip Girl? At least that would be sort of funny. Or something.

However, there's a bigger question at hand: Who will play Louise's rap-happy best girlfriend? If you're unsure of what this role entails, please, for the love of all things holy, watch the "Top That" clip from Teen Witch after the jump. You may never be the same again.

To check it out (thanks to Giggle!),

I really wonder if they intend to do all new music? I can't imagine that soundtrack flying with kids these days. It absolutely rules, but in that '80s-ohmygoddidwereallydresslikethat way. I would love it if they'd cast Robyn Lively in some role in the remake. Obviously not one of the kids, but one of the adults? A parent? Something.

I've never seen this movie but it looks fantastically campy. I love when she says she couldn't talk to him b/c she'd be embarrassed! Embarrassed? Only those boys should have been embarrassed...well until that girl "topped that."

So, I wonder if this remake is going to have that awesomely-borderline-inappropriate scene when Brad takes Louise to that abandoned house in the woods...and proceeds to drop articles of clothing all throughout the house...:rotfl:

I think most of us are out of the demographic that this film will be geared to anyway.

I love that movie and Robyn Lively is so fabulous in that role, but I think that Teen Witch would be more Disney-fied if Ashley Tisdale got the role. "Top That" is such an awesomely bad song.

When I was a kid we rented this movie, and my mom stopped the tape and then fast-forwarded through the make-out scene. (We were really young though, it was probably '90 or '91 if we rented it, so I was only 1st or 2nd grade). Whenever I see this movie on cable (usually at Halloween of course), I HAVE to watch it! That and Hocus Pocus, are my Halloween guilty pleasures! Also, WoW, totally didn't know that girl is the sister of the girl in Gossip Girl (I don't watch it though). That's cool.

I love this much! I think Ashley can do a good job. Since it's also a musical, I think it can be done in a good way, since it's what Ashley is mostly associated with.

ANOTHER re-make? Hollywood is fastly proving that talent and imagination aren't needed anymore and society is buying it. Sad.

OMG! This was my favorite movie of all time! They don't need to remake this, the old one is a classic. Plus Ashley can't act.

Oh my god I loved that movie! I must have watched it over 50 times as a kid, it was always on tv. It should stay in the 80s, I don't think it would really work now.
