The Craft celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2016 and, once upon a time, there was a reboot (or perhaps a sequel) in the works timed to coincide with that milestone. Obviously, it failed to materialize, but rumors of a reboot of The Craft reboot have persisted since. Now, the trade source Production Weekly has listed The Craft remake on its recent schedule of films.
Production Weekly lists Blumhouse as the studio behind The Craft reboot with Jason Blum, Doug Wick, and Lucy Fisher listed as producers.
It’s important to note that we have yet to receive confirmation from Blumhouse, so take this news with a sliver of skepticism. Remember: World War Z 2 also popped up on Production Weekly’s roster recently, and that film was subsequently canceled. Anything can happen. Nonetheless, we’ll keep our ears to the ground in order to bring you all Craft-related news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
Check out the synopsis and trailer for the original Craft 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.
The Craft was directed by Andrew Fleming from a screenplay he co-wrote with Peter Filardi.
