News ‘Candyman’ Director Nia DaCosta Teases Tony Todd’s Return Published 1 month ago on March 1, 2020 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Ever since the trailer dropped for director Nia DaCosta‘s “spiritual sequel” to Bernard Rose’s Candyman, one of the most popular questions that keeps popping up is, “where is Tony Todd?” Rest assured, he does appear in the film at some point. RELATED: ‘CANDYMAN’ TRAILER DARES YOU TO REPEAT HIS NAME FIVE TIMES In a new interview with SyFy Wire, DaCosta teased: “Well well well… I really love Tony Todd, he’s iconic. And I will say what we’ve done with this film is… is great. And Tony’s great. Jordan’s great. I don’t want to give anything away.” Here’s the official plot for Candyman: “For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II; HBO’s Watchmen, Us) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris; If Beale Street Could Talk, The Photograph), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.” “With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo; HBO’s Euphoria, Assassination Nation) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.” The film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Colman Domingo and Tony Todd.
