Back in May we reported that Sony had ordered the remake of 1996’s The Craft. News has come via THR that Leigh Janiak has been hired to both direct and pen the new script, along side Phil Raziadei. Doug Wick will be returning as a producer. There is no word yet who will star in the remake.
Director Andrew Fleming and writer Peter Filardi did an amazing job on the original film. Robin Tunney (The Mentalist), Neve Campbell (Scream), Fairuza Balk (The Waterboy), Rachel True (Social Nightmare), Skeet Ulrich (Scream) and Christine Taylor (Tropic Thunder) made up the perfect cast for the film.
I bind you Sony, from doing harm, harm against others and harm against the original movie.
