Universal Pictures was set to bring a horror icon back to life on June 12, 2020 with the release Candyman.
This installment will be a direct sequel to the original 1992 film and has been described as a spiritual sequel.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic that’s forced cinemas across the world to shut down, Universal will no longer be releasing Candyman on that date.
We’ve been hearing for years about the reboot of Clive Barker horror classic ‘Candyman‘ and now we can see the first trailer from the project; produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, US) with Jason Blum for his studio Blumhouse (in association with MGM); and directed by Nia DaCosta (Top Boy, Crossing the Line).
The film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Tony Todd returning as the title character.
