The Craft reboot will center around Hannah (Spaeny), a newcomer who befriends three young ladies at school. They begin experimenting with witchcraft and unleash a power that solves their problems at a high cost.
The 1996 film starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True, and Neve Campbell. Tunney was the newcomer and the Balk, True and Campbell were the outcasts. In this version, Tunney’s character had a natural talent for witchcraft that Balk, True and Campbell wanted. The four used their power to get back at their bullies, but got a little power hungry and turned on each other.
Zoe Lister-Jones will write and direct the contemporary version. Jason Blum is producing alongside Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher of Red Wagon Entertainment, the production company behind the 90s version. Andrew Fleming, co-writer and director of the original, will serve as executive producer with Lucas Wiesendanger from Red Wagon.
