With Tony Todd potentially going to appear, and Peele in the producer’s corner, this “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 horror classic has a chance to make some major waves at the box office.

Rising filmmaker Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) will direct Candyman from a screenplay by Peele and Win Rosenfeld. The film returns to the neighborhood where the legend began, the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood.
