Blumhouse has confirmed the ladies who will be replacing the original witches and the cast choices are pretty surprising.
As much as we LOVE the original and know that nothing will ever replace it or our love for the 90s coven, reboots have become a regular thing and it is the cult classic's turn to get a makeover now.
Blumhouse, the leader of low budget quality horror movies is rebooting the witchy movie and the cast of the reboot has been confirmed.
Who's in it? Not anybody we expected except Cailee Spaeny from On the Basis of Sex and Bad Times at the El Royale as she was already confirmed to be on board.
She is playing the lead role and replacing Robin Tunney. Others are - Spaeny, Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Zoey Luna (Pose), as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
Blumhouse revealed the news through their Twitter account as well. "The Craft has its coven! The movie, written, directed and produced by @ZoeListerJones, has cast Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone and Zoey Luna to join the witchy, wonderful reimagining of the iconic ‘90s film," they tweeted along with pictures of the new cast.
What do you think of it? We are seeing mostly negative reactions, yikes!
'Is there even such a thing as original content anymore?,' tweeted a person asking the same question as all of us. 'Disappointing. A sequel with a phenomenal untold story pushing the original cast / characters in a new direction would’ve been much better to be honest. Halloween proved this,' added another.
Zoe Lister-Jones from Life in Pieces and New Girl has been hired by Blumhouse to direct the reboot. Columbia Pictures is financing the movie. The early production began in late July and Doug Wick, the producer of the original movie, has returned to his respective seat and is the only link between the two movies.
What can we expect? Producer Wick has spilled some details, "Here are some young women who once again discover the power of magic, and we explore their emotional lives, their wants, their fears, their longings, as they become empowered. So you know, the same way you use a war movie to explore the psyche of men, you get to create a heightened world to explore the psyche of these women. That seemed like an opportunity that was ripe and a way to make a movie that would be very much about now."
The plot of the old movie will be remade into something which will appeal to the audience of today. The Craft reboot will center around Hannah, a teenage high school girl who is considered as an outcast.
She forms friendships with three other girls and begins to practice witchcraft spells and just like the old movie, things will first start out fine for the young ladies but then, witchcraft will begin to take a toll on them. The release date, first poster and teaser are all yet to be revealed. Are you excited for Craft reboot?
