Peele on casting the lead: I don’t see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie. Not that I don’t like white dudes but I’ve seen that movie.

The film will tell the story of graduate student Helen Lyle, who explores local legends for a research paper with the help of her friend.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris star in MGM’s new Candyman flick, which is set to hack and slash its way into theatres worldwide on June 12th, 2020.
