Jordan Peele’s Remake of the ”Candy Man”

The man responible for horror flicks, such as Get Out and Us is bringing us a remake of the Candy Man.  The first version was released in 1992 starring Tony Todd and Virginia Madsen.  Madsen played a Chicago sociology graduate student who is researching urban legends, hears of a local story about the Candyman. The legend claims that Candyman can be summoned by saying his name five times while facing a mirror, whereupon he will kill the summoner with a hook jammed on the bloody stump of his right arm. The new version will star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, (Aquaman, Watchmen) Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk, Chi-Raq) Vanessa Williams( New Jack City, Soul Food).  Its not certain if Tony Todd will reprise his role as Candy Man, however he will appear in the this new version. I guess we will find out June 12, 2020.
