‘The Craft’ Reboot in the Works From Blumhouse

Straight off of the massive success of Us this weekend, genre powerhouse Blumhouse has announced the studio will be rebooting the 1996 fan favorite, The Craft. Zoe Lister-Jones has been confirmed as the writer and director on the project, which will be developed in conjunction with Columbia Pictures.

The original film, directed by Andrew Fleming, centers around a teenage coven of witches discovering their powers. To say that Lister-Jones has big shoes to fill is an understatement. Besides earning millions at the box office, the movie starring Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True, and Robin Tunney has become somewhat of a cult classic. In 1996, the quartet of blossoming witches inspired and empowered a generation of young women within the horror realm and dark arts community.  As with any remake, die hard fans will remain skeptical to see if this update to their beloved coven lives up to the original.

Horror News Network will keep you updated The Craft reboot as news breaks.
