It’s been over 30 years since Candyman first arrived in theaters. And the classic gothic supernatural horror film returns in the new Candyman directed by Nia DaCosta, and starring Teyonah Parris. In this stars in this thrilling retake of Candyman with Jordan Peele healming production. Nia DaCosta wrote the screenplay for the sequal alongside Jordan Peele, and Win Rosenfeld with Ian Cooper, Rosenfeld and Peele as producers. Tony Todd returns as Daniel Robitaille, the son of a save born in the late 1800’s and now wreaking havoc on Chicago in the form of a boogieman ghost. And Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is also in the movie.
Most assumed Jordan Peele would be directing the movie when word spread that Peele had picked up rights to the script.
