News ‘Get Out’ Director Jordan Peele Producing ‘Candyman’ Remake? Published 3 months ago on September 10, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet I can’t imagine any Candyman movie whether it be a sequel or remake without Tony Todd being involved. Well, today brings speculation that Oscar-winning writer/director Jordan Peele (Get Out) is apparently in talks to remake the 1992 Clive Barker adaptation through his company Monkeypaw Productions. The original movie was directed by Bernard Rose and starred Todd in the title role, playing an urban legend with a bloody hook for a hand. “Skeptical graduate student Helen Lyle (Virginia Madsen) befriends Anne-Marie McCoy (Vanessa Williams) while researching superstitions in a housing project on Chicago’s Near North Side. From Anne-Marie, Helen learns about the Candyman (Tony Todd), a knife-wielding figure of urban legend that some of her neighbors believe to be responsible for a recent murder. After a mysterious man matching the Candyman’s description begins stalking her, Helen comes to fear that the legend may be all too real.” I believe there’s only one person that could ever play Candyman.
