There have been rumors about a new Candyman movie, be it remake or sequel, since the last film crawled its way to home video almost 10 years ago. Most recently a remake has been the talk of the town, with one theory being that Sony wanted to make Candyman a white boy, as insane and missing-the-point as that idea would be.
STYD got to sit down with Candyman himself, Tony Todd, who agreed it was a pretty ridiculous idea but that it’s their prerogative as to what they want to do with the property. Of course, that’d mean a new Candyman would have to be found, and I’d just love to see them try and replace someone as iconic as Todd.
One of Todd’s agents is theorizing that all this remake talk may just be a way to gauge interest so Sony can move forward with something new. “Maybe we could put our heads together and do something modern…,” he told the site. “If they do it, I’m willing to do one more as a final payoff or good-bye. I wouldn’t just phone it in, I’d want to commit to it.”
It sure would be nice to see another sequel rather than a franchise reboot, as studios are so hip to call their remakes now, but only time will tell where all of this will go.
