The cast for Blumhouse’s upcoming remake of The Craft continues to grow with the addition of another star. As reported by Deadline late yesterday, Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, Mission: Impossible – Fallout) has boarded the feature which also recently added The X-Files’ David Duchovny and young Hollywood newcomer Julian Grey. Monaghan’s specific role is still being kept under wraps.
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 is 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.
Starring in this version is Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising, On the Basis of Sex), Gideon Adlon (The Mustang, Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Zoey Luna (Pose). The cast also includes Nicholas Galitzine (Share, Chambers), David Duchovny (The X-Files), Julian Grey (Godless, Downhill), and Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, Mission: Impossible – Fallout).
