Talking with Hitfix, The Craft remake producer Douglas Wick, who also produced the original, says the upcoming film will be more like an update, taking place “twenty years later.” Although the cast of the film will be different, the young women in the follow-up will have some connections to the original film. Wick says:

“There will be callbacks to the original movie, so you will see there is a connection between what happened in the days of The Craft, and how these young women come across this magic many years later.”

Wick also delved into the direction remake director Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon) and co-writer Phil Graziedi will bring to the update:

“Here are some young women who once again discover the power of magic, and we explore their emotional lives, their wants, their fears, their longings, as they become empowered. So you know, the same way you use a war movie to explore the psyche of men, you get to create a heightened world to explore the psyche of these women. And so that seemed like an opportunity that was ripe and a way to make a movie that would be very much about now. And of course, part of that was just finding a talent that felt like enough of a real talent that you’d really be interested in her interpretation of this kind of story now, and of course Leigh is exactly that.”
