Though plot details and casting information has been scarce, we got word late yesterday that the planned Candyman reboot from by Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions is set to begin filming in Chicago this August. Geek Vibes Nation got the scoop, which they shared with their followers via Twitter.
Peele is penning the screenplay with Nia DaCosta directing the Candyman reboot. It seems likely that OG Candyman Tony Todd will join previously confirmed cast members Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris. Candyman is based on Clive Barker’s short story “The Forbidden”.
