The Craft reboot casts the coven of teen witches

With Halloween in sight, the upcoming reboot of The Craft has finally rounded out the rest of its core cast, according to THR.

The new coven includes Gideon Adlon (The Society), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf) and Zoey Luna (Pose). They join the already-cast Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times At The El RoyalePacific Rim: Uprising), who is set to play the lead role of Hannah in the film.

The retelling of The Craft is set to follow a similar story to the original 90s cult hit: Hannah, the film’s equivalent of Robin Tunney’s character Sarah Bailey, is “a high school outcast who falls into a friendship with three other young women and begins experimenting with witchcraft. They unleash a power that at first seems to solve problems in their lives but slowly consumes them with unforeseen costs.”

Zoe Lister-Jones has signed up to write and direct the film, and Columbia Pictures and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse are financing it. Blum will serve as an executive producer alongside Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher’s Red Wagon Entertainment. Red Wagon’s Lucas Wiesendanger is executive producing alongside Andrew Fleming, who directed the original The Craft film.

The original film was released in 1996 to mixed reviews, but has since gone on to earn its cult film status. It stars Robin Tunney as Sarah Bailey, Neve Campbell as Bonnie Harper, Rachel True as Rochelle Zimmerman and the brilliant Fairuza Balk as Nancy Downs.
