Fans are up in arms over Sony looking to give a fresh take on 90’s The Craft”
After transferring to a Los Angeles high school, Sarah (Robin Tunney) finds that her telekinetic gift appeals to a group of three wannabe witches, who happen to be seeking a fourth member for their rituals. Bonnie (Neve Campbell), Rochelle (Rachel True) and Nancy (Fairuza Balk), like Sarah herself, all have troubled backgrounds, which combined with their nascent powers lead to dangerous consequences. When a minor spell causes a fellow student to lose her hair, the girls grow power-mad.
Which if we are really thinking about it kind of got rebooted when Josh Trank did his film Chronicle. Even the name smells of a nod to the craft. Josh Trank is taking those same notes and has made Fantastic Four reboot.
I don’t think that the Craft is a reboot that everybody is waiting for. Where are the changes in our culture or technology that would make this a dramatically different than the first. A remake in this climate is just asking for disapointment.
What do you think about a Craft Remake?
