Originally thought to be a remake of Andrew Fleming's witchy 1996 classic, it turns out that Blumhouse's newly-titled The Craft: Legacy is actually a sequel that follows a brand new foursome of aspiring teenage witches who get more than they bargained for as they lean into their newfound powers.
Alongside the trailer premiere, Blumhouse Productions and Columbia Pictures have announced they will be releasing the film widely on Premium VOD platforms, rather than in theaters, this Halloween!
Beginning October 28th, The Craft: Legacy will arrive on leading digital retailers for a 48-hour rental period at a suggested retail price of $19.99, and for premium digital purchase at a suggested retail price of $24.99. An international theatrical release is anticipated in several territories, with details to be solidified in the weeks ahead.
Written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones, the film stars Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Nicholas Galitzine, with Michelle Monaghan and David Duchovny.
"Zoe Lister-Jones has put a bewitching twist on continuing The Craft franchise, and October is the perfect season for it," said producer Jason Blum. "We’re thrilled that our partners at Sony Pictures are looking at the landscape opportunistically this Halloween, for audiences to watch at home in the U.S."
Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse. Academy Award-winning producer Douglas Wick (who also produced the original film) and Lucy Fisher are producing for Red Wagon Entertainment.
Andrew Fleming, Lucas Wiesendanger, Daniel Bekerman, Beatriz Sequeira, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, Zoe Lister-Jones and Natalia Anderson are executive producers.
