Remember all that hubbub a few years back when it was announced that a reboot (or possibly a sequel) to 1996’s cult horror hit The Craft would hit theaters in time to coincide with the original’s 20th Anniversary? Well, 2016 came and went with no Craft remake, sequel—or anything for that matter. The last murmurs we heard were back in 2017 when it sounded as though producers were going back to the drawing board with a new script.
Since then: A whole lot of nothing. Still, the quartet of actresses who starred in The Craft (Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True) are reuniting for some convention appearances this year, which got folks wondering, you know, what’s up? Speaking to etalk last week, Tunney actually dropped a bomb:
“They are still remaking it,” Robin Tunney, who played Sarah Bailey in the 1996 cult classic, told etalk. “Zoe Lister-Jones is writing it. And I may or may not do it. I’m so proud of that movie. It was the first lead I ever had and it’s a movie young girls today still watch at sleepovers. It’s girl power and I’m so proud of it. I’m SO proud of it.”
We definitely haven’t heard anything official regarding a Craft reboot/sequel, but we’ll definitely keep you posted as news emerges. Scream Factory is releasing a stunning collector’s edition Blu-ray/DVD in March that’s definitely worth investing in (details in link below). If it’s been a while, check out the film’s trailer and synopsis below.
After transferring to a Los Angeles high school, Sarah (Robin Tunney) finds that her telekinetic gift appeals to a group of three wannabe witches, who happen to be seeking a fourth member for their rituals. Bonnie (Neve Campbell), Rochelle (Rachel True) and Nancy (Fairuza Balk), like Sarah herself, all have troubled backgrounds, which combined with their nascent powers lead to dangerous consequences. When a minor spell causes a fellow student to lose her hair, the girls grow power-mad.
