In which we suggest who should star in the next big adaptation, remake, or historical film.
“Light as a feather, stiff as a board…” the ’90s teen cult classic The Craft is getting a 21st-century remake, courtesy of Sony Pictures. Honeymoon‘s Leigh Janiak and Phil Graziadei are on board to write the script, with Janiak also directing. Released in 1996, the original film follows Sarah (Robin Tunney), the nice new girl at a Catholic school called St. Bernard Academy in L.A. Sarah has a few secrets—she’s telekinetic, for example—and falls in with a group of three goth girls (beautiful misfits) who dabble in witchcraft (“the bitches of Eastwick”). What begins as a little bit of teenage fun (I can change my hair color! I can make the mean boy at school do whatever I want!) soon descends into a deadly showdown.
