The Craft Leigh Janiak

Sony has announced a remake of the THE CRAFT is in the works, and Leigh Janiak has been tapped to helm the project. Janiak (who directed the 2014 horror film HONEYMOON and will be behind the camera for an episode of MTV's upcoming Scream series) will also co-write the script with Phil Graziadei. Original THE CRAFT producer Doug Wick will produce the remake with Lucy Fisher. According to THR, Janiak "impressed execs with her take on a female empowerment tale."

The 1996 witchcraft-themed movie starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True as a group of teenager girls who use spells and curses to improve their lives and take revenge on those who have slighted them. The movie grossed over $55 million worldwide against a budget of $15 million, and inspired countless girls to visit their local Hot Topic store.

I don't remember THE CRAFT being a great movie (it's been a very long time since I've seen it), but I thought it was decent at the time, and who doesn't like hot witches? Which actresses would you like to see star in the remake?
