News ‘The Craft’ Script to Get a Rewrite from 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Daniel Casey Published 2 years ago on May 17, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet It must of been a good year since we last heard anything on the remake of director Andrew Fleming’s 1996 supernatural thriller The Craft, and after all this time, we pretty much forgot about it. Producer Douglas Wick did state way back that Leigh Janiak’s version of the film would take place decades-later, a sequel to the original. The Tracking Board reported today that Sony has conjured hot scribe Daniel Casey (10 Cloverfield Lane) to rewrite Leigh Janiak’s remake of The Craft. The original film followed: “Sarah (Robin Tunney) finds that her telekinetic gift appeals to a group of three wannabe witches, who happen to be seeking a fourth member for their rituals. Bonnie (Neve Campbell), Rochelle (Rachel True) and Nancy (Fairuza Balk), like Sarah herself, all have troubled backgrounds, which combined with their nascent powers lead to dangerous consequences. When a minor spell causes a fellow student to lose her hair, the girls grow power-mad.” Janiak was hired in May 2015 to direct an update of the 1996 supernatural thriller, as well as co-write the script with her Honeymoon partner Phil Graziadei. Casey’s hiring indicates that the studio is eager to get the remake off the ground. Andrew Fleming co-wrote and directed The Craft, which starred Robin Tunney as a teenage girl who befriends a group of budding witches played by Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk and Rachel True. Meanwhile, Janiak reportedly impressed Sony execs with her take on the remake as a story of female empowerment. Dark Universe will stay on top of further updates on The Craft.
