Jay Reiss is going to be writing the script while Scott Budnick and Ori Marmur will executive produce for their respective companies Todd Phillips Co. and Original Films.

The film portrays Black as a teacher who realizes he has witchlike abilities. Shocked by his new powers, he still embraces them as he is taken in by a coven. The coven persuades him to attend a school only for witches so he can enhance his powers. Another shock soon hits him though as he discovers all his classmates are girls.

The film is aiming for a release sometime in 2009.
