Nicole Kidman confirms joining Sandra Bullock for Practical Magic 2

Days after it was reported that Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock were in talks to reprise their roles in the 1998 film Practical Magic, the former confirmed that she would indeed be a part of the sequel.

Kidman, in her recent interview with People, confirmed that she will play Gillian Owens and added that Sandra Bullock will play her older sister, Sally.

The romantic fantasy will also witness the return of screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, who wrote the original film along with Robin Swicord and Adam Brooks. The feature is expected to be backed by the leading ladies.

Based on Alice Hoffman's 1995 novel, Practical Magic follows two orphaned sisters brought up by their aunts who wholeheartedly embrace the magical side of life. The original film, directed by Griffin Dunne, also boasts stellar performances by Stockard Channing, Aidan Quinn, and Dianne Wiest. It grossed over $68 million in theatres worldwide.

Kidman is part of Expats, the miniseries on Amazon Prime Video, and is next slated to star opposite Joey King and Zac Efron in Netflix's rom-com A Family Affair. Her future projects are a mix of genres, including the Netflix murder mystery show The Perfect Couple, the Amazon show Kay Scarpetta, and the thriller feature Holland, Michigan.

Fresh off blockbusters like The Lost City and Bullet Train, Bullock has also garnered acclaim for her work in Netflix's Bird Box and The Unforgivable.
