’90s Cult Classic ‘The Craft’ Is Getting a Female-Led Reboot
Get your Doc Maartens and your all-black wardrobe ready: The Craft is making a comeback.
On Wednesday, Columbia Pictures and Blumhouse announced that the 1996 cult classic will get a reboot, this time with indie filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones at the helm. Lister-Jones will not only direct the film but she will also write the “contemporary take” on the film, according to Deadline.
The original film, starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Christine Taylor, Rachel True, and Skeet Ulrich, centered around four Los Angeles high school students moonlighting as witches in their downtime. The outcome, of course, is disastrous, but not without a few moments of fun in between.
Fans of the film had a lot to say on social media about the news.
Check out some of the reactions below:
And while many fans expressed their emotions, others noted that the first articles about the film failed to mention the one black lead actress, Rachel True.
No word has been released on the cast or an expected filming date yet.
