A reboot of 1996 supernatural horror flick The Craft has been in the pipeline for the past four years, but it looks like things are finally moving along.
Back in June, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Pacific Rim: Uprising star Cailee Spaeny has been lined up to play Hannah, the downtrodden high-school student who forms a witch’s coven with a group of fellow outcasts. And now, the rest of the line-up has been confirmed.
Spaeny will be joined by TV stars Gideon Adlon (The Society) and Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), with up-and-coming transgender actress Zoey Luna (Pose) completing the coven.
Though it was made on a relatively low budget of $15million, The Craft has gone on to become a cult favourite. Needless to say, then, when it was announced back in 2015 that Blumhouse Productions were planning to film a new version, some fans were less than pleased.
One tweeted: “How dare you try to remake The Craft. It’s already been made. Stop it.”
Another begged: “Please don’t attempt to remake The Craft. Why can’t people just leave the legendary things alone.”
And a third scoffed: “Next movie to get a remake, that should NEVER be remade, is The Craft.”
The rebooted movie is being written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, who’s only directed one feature film to date – 2017’s Band Aid. While there’s been no word about an official release date, it’s expected to hit cinemas in 2020.
