The Craft

Columbia Pictures

Prepare to be bewitched, again!

Sony Pictures is remaking the 1996 horror film The Craft with the help of rising genre filmmaker Leigh Janiak.

Janiak, who found recent success within the horror film genre with her 2014 flick Honeymoon, is set to direct the film's reboot. She will also co-write the new version of the cult classic with Phil Graziadei, whom she has worked together with before, penning the script to Janiak's 2014 breakthrough film.

The Craft was originally directed by Andrew Fleming and starred Fairuza Balk, Rachel True, Robin Tunney and Neve Campbell, who has starred in other horror films such as the Scream franchise.

Doug Wick, who produced the original '90s flick will be back in the same capacity for the new reboot with former Vice Chairman of Columbia Lucy Fisher, who will also be producing the new film.

The original movie centered around four teen witches at a Catholic school who used witchcraft for vengeful acts and to fix personal problems, which oftentimes went disastrously wrong.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report of the remake.
