Sony has been toying with an “I Dream of Jeannie” movie for years – in fact, they were trying to court Alicia Silverstone into the bottle in the mid ’90s; that’s how long they’ve been at this thing!
Now, after a number of false starts, The Los Angeles Times reports that “United States of Tara” writer Sheila Callaghan has been assigned to write a new draft of the “Jeannie” movie.
