A sequel/reboot/remake to The Craft (1996) has been rumored for quite some time now. Recently, one of the stars of the original movie admitted that the project is still in the cards and that she might be reprising her role for the new iteration of what has now become a 1990s teen horror classic.
In The Craft, Robin Tunney stars as Sarah Bailey, a teen who relocates to Los Angeles and quickly becomes friends with three girls interested in witchcraft. In a recent interview with etalk, Tunney had this to say about the potential remake:
They are still remaking it. Zoe Lister-Jones is writing it. And I may or may not do it. I’m so proud of that movie. It was the first lead I ever had and it’s a movie young girls today still watch at sleepovers. It’s girl power and I’m so proud of it. I’m SO proud of it.
Even though the film didn’t make any HUGE waves at the box office, The Craft was a success when it was released in May 1996. With a budget of 15 million, the film took in over $55 million. Since then, The Craft went on to become a home video/DVD staple. In addition to Tunney, The Craft stars a pre-Scream Neve Campbell, Rachel True, and Fairuza Balk in the iconic role of Nancy Downs. The film was directed by Andrew Fleming (Bad Dreams) from a screenplay by Peter Filardi (Flatliners).
Other than the statement about the remake/reboot still being worked on and it being written by Zoe Lister-Jones, there is no other news concerning director or cast. I’m just hoping the original witches at least make a cameo.
