Candyman Reboot

Tools    





"Honor is not in the Weapon. It is in the Man"
Jordan Peele has co-written a "spiritual sequel/reboot" to the 1992 horror film Candyman and will be producing the film alongside fellow co-writer Win Rosenfeld. However, directing the film will be Nia DaCosta.



Peele had this to say about the reimagining:
“The original was a landmark film for black representation in the horror genre. Alongside Night of the Living Dead, Candyman was a major inspiration for me as a filmmaker — and to have a bold new talent like Nia at the helm of this project is truly exciting. We are honored to bring the next chapter in the Candyman canon to life and eager to provide new audiences with an entry point to Clive Barker’s legend.”

He's got quite the busy schedule. Turning into a regular Guillermo del Toro over here. I am curious to see where he takes this.

This might just do nobody any good.
Lakeith Stanfield is, reportedly, also starring.

Not bad. He was over the top and cheesy in Aquaman, but he could pull off menacing if need be.

With all the politically correct sensitivity in society lately, would Candyman work today, since the original makes the African American ghetto in Chicago seem very crime ridden and supernaturally possessed and all?



I remember that we have a VHS copy of this movie. I just hope that the reboot is good.

Jordan Peele is involved with this reboot, so it's likely going to be really good, even better than the original.
