We've got some major casting news about the 90s remake.September 20, 2019
Back in March, we learned that cult-classic film The Craft was getting a remake.
Now, we know who will be playing the four core witches in the coven.
The 1996 cult horror film focuses on four teenage girls who practice witchcraft and curse anyone who they don’t like. It was directed by Andrew Fleming.
The original film starred Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk and Rachel True.
Now, the four witches will be played by Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone and Zoey Luna. Blumhouse made the announcement of the casting on Twitter.

The Craft remake will be written, directed and executive produced by Zoe Lister-Jones. It’s being produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse and Douglas Wick, who was a producer of the original film.
Fleming will also serve as an executive producer for the reboot.
In 2015, it was reported that Leigh Janiak would be leading a remake script of the film that was to be set 20 years later. He is now no longer attached to the film.
It’s unclear if the original cast will make an appearance in the film yet, but Tunney has previously said she’d love to reprise her role in a sequel of the film.
“I feel like if it came along and the script was good and I actually thought it was going to be something … I want them to find a great director. … If it was something where I felt like they were going to do it well, and also find a way, because it’s been so much time, you can’t just do a sequel,” Tunney told ComicBook.com.
“I think on some level, it totally has to, in order to feel relevant, I think it should be maybe funnier or something.”
