Will The Third Witch Come On Down!


The witch trifecta is complete.  The Warner Bros.-produced, ABC-broadcast pilot Eastwick has signed on Rebecca Romijn as Roxie, the "bohemian and sharp-tongued single mother," who is coming in to her powers.  Romijn (I don't think I will ever get used to dropping the Stamos from her name) is best known to readers as Mystique from The X-Men films.  She joins a cast that includes Lindsay Price (Lipstick Jungle) and Jaime Ray Newman (The Gauntlet) as her fellow witches.

Eastwick is loosely based on the 1980s film The Witches of Eastwick, which, in turn, was based on the John Updike novel of the same name.  Though the TV series is more "inspired by" than "remake of," it still follows the same basic plotline, according to the Hollywood Reporter: "Three young witches come into their powers when a mysterious man comes to town."
