Nia DaCosta and Jordan Peele’s “Monekypaw Productions”, have released the trailer for ‘Candyman’. Candyman is an original horror from 1992. DaCosta and Peele wanted to make the new version of ‘Candyman’ standout to people who have saw the orginal movie and those who have not.
According to Slash Film, producer Ian Cooper said,
“What we’re doing with Candyman and how Jordan is crafting it on the page is going to be very exciting and rewarding to audiences that haven’t seen the original film as well as people who’ve seen the original film,”. “In a broad sense of the word, this film will stand alone if you’ve never heard of a film called Candyman and will dovetail in a pretty complicated and interesting way to the original. In short, I think this will really fit in with what we’re doing with Us and did with Get Out in a way that will be circuitous.”
Director Nia DaCosta is know for her breakout filmLittle Woodsin 2019. While Peele is known for his black representation in horror movies.
You can expect to see Tony Todd from the original ‘Candyman’, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Colman Doming, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II,and Cassie Kramer.
