Per a report by Bloody Disgusting, Jordan Peele is in negotiations to reboot ‘Candyman’. The horror revival would be produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions outfit.
The Candyman is an iconic horror character established in Clive Barker’s 1992 original. The flick sparked a franchise that ran throughout the nineties.
The character’s mirror-based calling card has captured the imagination of generations. Horror villains with a concept tend to be a hit lately. Hence the popularity of Pennywise The Clown in ‘It’, another remake.
Jordan Peele is a star creative in 2018. He cut his teeth in comedy writing and performing with Keegan-Michael Key. In 2017, his socially aware horror/mystery ‘Get Out’ was released to critical acclaim.
All elements considered, this ‘Candyman’ reboot could be massively successful.
