“We made CANDYMAN to be seen in theaters. Not just for the spectacle but because the film is about community and stories–how they shape each other, how they shape us. It’s about the collective experience of trauma and joy, suffering and triumph, and the stories we tell around it.”
That’s what Nia DaCosta, director of the new reboot of “Candyman” reported on Twitter which was supposed to be released in September already, reports filmiere.com.
Co-written and produced by Jordan Peele, it was put its quality into question when it was suddenly decided to go the VOD route but now that they want to be back in theatres, it seems the distributor has faith in the movie but just waits for the right time.
The original 1992 version is a cult classic with Virginia Madsen and Tony Todd who’s expected to reprise his role. Filmiere.com will keep inform you about the new details surrounding the release of this movie and others.
