It’s been almost two weeks since the Jordan Peele-produced Candyman remake (directed by Nia DaCosta) began filming in Chicago, but we’re getting a heap of new casting news today. Our friends at Bloody Disgusting announced that the production has enlisted a gaggle of local actors, many with theater experience:

Joining the film’s cast are Brian King (Showtime’s The Chi, Starz!’s Boss), award-winning stage/screen actress Rebecca Spence (Princess CydPublic Enemies, Steppenwolf Theatre), Glenview native Kyle Kaminsky (One Night in HollywoodDriverX), and a trio of Chicago stage veterans — Carl Clemons-Hopkins (Lin-Manuel Miranda’s HamiltonDreamgirls),Cedric Mays (Chicago’s Steppenwolf and Goodman Theatres), and Christiana Clark (Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Minneapolis’ Guthrie Theater).
