The witchy movie we all grew up watching is getting a remake and the cast of new witches is officially out.
In case you don't already know, the 90s witchy classic we all grew up watching aka The Craft is getting a remake by Blumhouse, and no, the original cast isn't coming back, as much as we all would love to see them reunite again.
The new coven of witches has been announced and joining them is none other than David Duchovny from X-Files, as reported by Deadline. As far as the new witches are concerned, Cailee Spaeny from On the Basis of Sex and Bad Times at the El Royale is playing the lead, replacing Robin Tunney. Others are - Spaeny, Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Zoey Luna (Pose).
Blumhouse revealed the news through its 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.
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?
