There is a change in direction for the new "The Craft" film after it was announced last year. The new film was said to have been a remake of the 1996 witch film that opened to No. 1 at the box office on May 3 1996.
The film starred Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, Rachel True and Neve Campbell as four teenage witches who obtain the ultimate power. Three of the four original actresses voiced their concern for the lack of originality in Hollywood, however Neve Campbell and Rachel True offer support the new project.
Producer Douglas Wick (who also produced the original), has said the film has changed from remake to sort-of sequel.
"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."
Filmmaker Leigh Janiak is directing and co-writing the film with Phil Graziedi, and Wick intends on doing Janiak's vision justice.
Wick says Janiak and Graziadei's vision for this film will depict the emotional, psychological lives of a new set of girls after gaining the same magic
