It is believed that the studio bringing on this new author is a sign that they are keen to maneuver ahead and get manufacturing rolling.
The Tracking Board broke the information earlier right now, nevertheless it is not in the end clear if Daniel Casey is ranging from scratch with a page-one rewrite, or if components of Leigh Janiak and Phil Graziadei’s script will stay intact. Leigh Janiak remains to be hooked up to direct, with producer Douglas Wick revealing final May that The Craft 2 is not a reboot, however as a substitute a sequel that takes place 20 years after the unique film, set in modern-day. With a brand new author on board, it stays unclear whether or not or not this idea will stay intact or not.
The Craft wasn’t precisely a field workplace juggernaut when it hit theaters in May 1996, pulling in simply $24.6 million throughout its theatrical run, nevertheless it gained fairly the cult following upon its launch on dwelling video. The story centered on 4 mates, Bonnie (Neve Campbell), Nancy (Fairuza Balk), Rochelle (Rachel True), and Sarah (Robin Tunney), who kind their very own witch coven whereas attending the Angeles Catholic prep highschool, the place they use their powers in opposition to fellow classmates who’d performed them improper. The supporting solid included Skeet Ulrich, Christine Taylor, Breckin Meyer and Cliff De Young.
This report reveals that Sony Pictures was impressed by Leigh Janiak’s tackle the fabric, which focuses on female empowerment. No manufacturing schedule has been set at the moment, so it stays to be seen when casting might start, or when Sony might set a launch date for this supernatural sequel. Doug Wick is about to provide The Craft alongside Lucy Fisher, who was a high-ranking Columbia Pictures government when the primary film was launched. It stays to be seen if unique Craft director Andrew Fleming or his co-writer Peter Filardi will probably be concerned with this challenge or not.
Although he did not in the end get display credit score, Daniel Casey was one of many writers, together with Damien Chazelle, who helped flip the languishing movie often called The Cellar into the low-budget hit 10 Cloverfield Lane, which starred Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr. He is already working with Sony Pictures on a brand new thriller known as Incognito for director Fede Alvarez, and he was lately employed to jot down Inconstant Moon for director James Ponsoldt and producer Shawn Levy, primarily based on Larry Niven’s brief story. Hopefully we’ll have extra on The Craft quickly, now new author is tackling the challenge.
