Most Craft fans should know by now that there is a sequel in the making. It is safe to say there is a lot of buzz about this movie, especially from us girls who first watched it back in 1996. So whats the latest scoop?
The Craft is being remade by Sony Pictures, which has hired Honeymoon filmmaker Leigh Janiak to co-write and direct a remake of the 1996 movie, about a group of 4 of teenage witches, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
The original Craft producer Doug Wick will return to produce the film along with Lucy Fisher. Andrew Fleming directed the first film, which grossed nearly $25 million at the domestic box office. When it was first reported that the movie was coming out, everyone though it was going to be just another random remake. That was until producer Douglas Wicks told HitFix: “I wouldn’t say that we wouldn’t so much call it a remake as a ‘twenty years later.”
Just incase, you have not had the joy of seeing the first movie, we will do a little recap:
After transferring to a new high school, Sarah (Robin Tunney) finds that her telekinetic gift appeals to a group of three teenage, wannabe witches, who happen to be seeking a fourth member for their rituals and spells. Bonnie (Neve Campbell), Rochelle (Rachel True) and Nancy (Fairuza Balk), like Sarah herself, all have troubled backgrounds, which combined with their powers lead to very dangerous consequences. When a minor spell causes a fellow student to lose her hair, the girls grow power-mad. Not long after, the group is torn apart because of the black magic they start to perform.
This movie will forever be in my list of top movies. It brings back some pretty epic sleep over memories. Those who have seen this movie are probably really excited for the sequel 20 years later.
