By Chris Morse
The upcoming remake of The Craft from Blumhouse Productions has filled out the remainder of its leading roles. Deadline reported earlier today that Gideon Adlon (The Mustang, Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Zoey Luna (Pose) are joining previously-announced star Cailee Spaeny to fill out the high school coven of four.
Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising, On the Basis of Sex) will presumably play the part of Hannah, the high school outcast who falls into friendship with three other girls, picking up a little bit of witchcraft along the way. The recent additions to the cast will play the remaining witchcraft-practicing outcasts.
The original film starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Christine Taylor, Rachel True, and Skeet Ulric, telling the story of a high school newcomer who joins up with a trio of outcast students who practice witchcraft. Using a variety of spells and curses, the group gets revenge on anybody who happens to get on their bad side.
The Craft will be written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones with Jason Blum producing alongside Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, both of whom produced the original 1996 film. There is no target release date at this time, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted with all the latest here on Dead Entertainment.
