‘The Craft’ is getting a remake more than 20 years later
The cult-classic is coming back.March 26, 2019
Witches, your spells have finally worked — The Craft is getting a remake.
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.
Blumhouse has come forward with intention of making a remake. Bloody Disgusting reports that a new director will be brought on to the project.
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.
The news came from Production Weekly, where there is a listing for a Craft reboot.
The original film starred Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk and Rachel True. Last month, the four even celebrated a little reunion which you can see below.

It’s unclear if the original cast will make an appearance in the film yet, but Tunney 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.”

I’m on the fence with The Craft remake. I think there is potential to do some cool things with it if care is taken. Honestly (other than my general meh about remakes) I don’t have much of a reaction. Hiring choices will honestly shape my reaction more than just the news
