Leigh Janiak is set to write and direct a remake of Andrew Fleming’s 1996 supernatural teen thriller “The Craft” at Sony Pictures.
Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk and Rachel True starred in the original about a quartet of teenage girl outsiders who dabbled with black magic and end up suffering the consequences. It ended up being a cult hit and pretty much inspired The WB network to cash in on the craze with the TV series “Charmed”.
Janiak (“Honeymoon”) will co-write the script with Phil Graziadei, while Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce.
Reports emerged in December of a “Craft” remake being potentially in the works due to some strange questions in a marketing survey. Turns out that report had some weight to it after all.
