‘We are the weirdos mister’
Since a remake of cult 90s witch film The Craft was announced way back in 2015, fans have been gradually drip-fed info on the project – there were rumours of a sequel, not a reboot, and mystery surrounded the cast. Now The Blumhouse, the studio behind the film, has revealed its leading witches.
Cailee Spaeny (Vice, Pacific Rim), Gideon Adlon (The Society), Lovie Simone (Greanleaf) and Zoey Luna will take the lead as the four Catholic prep school outsiders who turn to black magic to deal with high school teen angst.
The studio, which has true horror credentials with Insidious, The Purge, Paranormal Activity and the 2018 reboot of Halloween, also announced the synopsis: “When starting at a new school, Hannah befriends Tabby, Lourdes, and Frankie and quickly becomes the fourth member of their clique. Hannah soon learns that she somehow brings great power to the quartet.”
There’s no official release date for the film, which is to be directed by Zoe Lister-Jones who impressed with her debut – 2017 comedy-drama Band Aid – but with filming having started in July of this year, expect it to arrive sometime around Halloween 2020.
