Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic 2

The 1998 romantic fantasy Practical Magic was a box office failure costing $75m to make but earning only $46m at the global box office. But despite that and now 26 years later news is in of Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman in Practical Magic 2 …or at least in negotiations to appear with both expected to produce the film too.

Fans began buzzing about the future of “Practical Magic” on Sunday, when an announcement was made at midnight on TikTok — a nod to the “midnight margaritas” scene from the first film — that the film was now available on digital and available to stream on Max.

Akiva Goldsman, who penned the original film alongside Robin Swicord and Adam Brooks, will return to write the Practical Magic 2 screenplay though details of the plot ate not known at present. The original film saw two sisters, Sally (Bullock) and Gillian Owens (Kidman), who come from a long line of witches. Orphaned at a young age, they are raised by their eccentric aunts, who embrace their magical heritage. However, the Owens family is cursed: any man who falls in love with an Owens woman is doomed to an untimely death…… rumours that this is based on Meghan Markle remain unfounded.

The film received generally negative reviews and failed to make a mark at the box office, but it has achieved cult status among audiences and since then both actresses have gone on to become Oscar winning stars.

Warners has tried to expand the Practical Magic universe with a prequel series, Rules of Magic on HBO Max 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 but the series disappeared pretty quickly.
