Newbie Oscar-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele is sticking to the scary category post-Get Out and has actually gotten in speak with produce a remake of Bernard Rose’s cult traditional 1992 Clive Barker adjustment, Candyman . Peele is presently shooting his brand-new social thriller United States , however is providing his skills as a manufacturer to a number of establishing category jobs, consisting of CBS All Access’ Twilight Zone TELEVISION program reboot and HBO’s horror-mystery series Lovecraft Country (which Peele co-created with Underground’s Misha Green).
Based on Barker’s narrative “The Forbidden” (from his Books of Blood collection series), Rose’s Candyman starred Virginia Madsen as Helen Lyle, a Chicago college student who gets in unfathomable while investigating the urban myth of the Candyman: the child of an artist and a servant who was assaulted by a lynch mob, after he fell for and had a kid with a white lady in the late 19th century. After his assaulters cut off his painting hand and smeared honey on him so he would be stung to death by bees, Candyman returned from the tomb as a killer who’s covered in bees, equipped with a hook-hand, and able to be summoned by those who state his name 5 times while searching in a mirror.
According to Bloody Disgusting , Peele is now in speak to produce a Candyman remake through his Monkeypaw Productions banner. While it’s possible the actor/writer/director is thinking about directing the remake himself, Peele appears more likely to focus his effort and time on lower-budgeted initial fare like Get Out and United States at the minute, while functioning as a manufacturer just on studio tentpoles and/or reboots of popular IPs like Twilight Zone.
As kept in mind by BD, Rose has actually revealed a desire to make an appropriate follow up that constructs on the (terrible) conclusion to his initial movie over the last few years, after the 2 followups launched in the 1990s (Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh and Candyman: Day of the Dead) cannot get that plot thread. Were such a movie to occur, it might follow in the steps of next month’s Halloween and function as a direct follow up to the very first Candyman motion picture that renders the occasions of its previous follows up non-canon.
For the time being, nevertheless, Peele’s remake is the only Candyman-related job that seems actively progressing. The reboot no doubt deals with an uphill struggle when it concerns winning over long time fans of Rose’s initial – a motion picture that, to name a few things, made a scary icon from Candyman star Tony Todd, years prior to he appeared in series like Final Destination and Hatchet. Nevertheless, Candyman’s social overtones make it an excellent match for Peele’s newly found brand name of racially delicate and otherwise politically thoughtful scary.
