Horror fans around the world are delighted as just hours ago the official Candyman Twitter page revealed the first poster and even a short teaser clip of the upcoming film. Better yet, a full trailer has been announced for this Thursday.
While there is no official synopsis at this time, Candyman is said to be a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 horror film that sees the killer return to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began. The Candyman screenplay is written by Jordan Peele, Win Rosenfeld and Nia DaCosta. Directed by Dacosta, Candyman stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Colman Domingo, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Rebecca Spence, Cassie Kramer and Tony Todd.
Principal photography for the slasher flick began in early August 2019 and wrapped in September 2019 in Chicago.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters in June 12, 2020. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on Candyman.
