Jordan Peele is set to produce a reboot of Candyman from director and writer Nia DaCosta. According to Variety, the project will be a “spiritual sequel” to the original film and will take place in the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood. “We cannot wait for the world to see what the mind-blowing combination of Jordan, Win [Rosenfeld], and Nia bring to the legend of Candyman,” says MGM Motion Picture Group president Jonathan Glickman. “They have created a story that will not only pay reverence to Clive Barker’s haunting and brilliant source material, but is also thoroughly modern and will bring in a whole new generation of fans.” Universal Pictures will release the movie theatrically on June 12, 2020.
