Jordan Peele is clearly on a horror streak as it has been revealed that he is set to move forward with a sequel to 1992’s ‘Candyman’. Yesterday, rumors of Peele’s involvement with a Candyman sequel was confirmed with Nia DaCosta attached to direct. According to reports, fans will get to see the film when it’s released on June 12th, 2020.
A little over a month after Bloody Disgusting reported an unconfirmed rumor that Get Out director Jordan Peele wanted to produce a remake to the Clive Barker ’90s horror film Candyman, MGM and Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions confirmed as much on Tuesday. According to Variety and the release, Peele and his producing partner, Win Rosenfeld, have written a script, and up-and-coming director Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) will helm the “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 slasher classic. MGM President Jonathan Glickman revealed the news in a press release. “We cannot wait for the world to see what the mind-blowing combination of Jordan, Win and Nia bring to the legend of Candyman,” he said. “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.”
