It was only earlier this month that we saw the core cast of The Craft reunite at Monster Mania – their four’s first time together since 1996 – and now comes word that the movie itself is to get the remake treatment.
Courtesy of Production Weekly, those rumours of Blumhouse remaking The Craft are indeed said to be true. At this stage, it’s being reported that Blumhouse is currently in talks with a director, although it’s yet to be revealed just who said director is.
If you remember, a new Craft movie has been being talked about for several years now, with Honeymoon’s Leigh Janiak working on a sequel three years ago. Janiak has long since left the project, but it appears that the notion of a new Craft picture is something that’s been kept gestating.
For those not familiar with the original ’96 movie, the Andrew Fleming-helmed effort centred on Robin Tunney as she makes friends with a trio of young witches played by Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True.
As ever, expect more on this Craft remake as we get it.
