Candyman, the 1990 clique horror movie featuring a living, vindictive urban legend, is being reconsidered by producer Jordan Peele (who’s having a standard day for declarations here) and director Nia DaCosta. Also, presently, that reimagining might have its stars.

As indicated by the Hollywood Reporter, Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk) is in converses with star in the film inverse Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman).

In this version of the story, Abdul-Mateen would assume the role of “an artist who becomes obsessed with the bloody legend [of Candyman],” per THR, while Parris would play his girlfriend, set in an improved Chicago.

The film begins creation at some point around the middle of this current year, and no release date is yet chosen.
