This "spiritual sequel" to the original film will still take place in Chicago, but the area is now gentrified. Abdul-Mateen (Aquaman/The Get Down), who is still in talks for the movie, would play an artist who becomes obsessed with the legend of Candyman. Teyonnah Parris is in talks to play Abdul-Mateen's girlfriend, who is an art dealer.
Parris was reccently in If Beale Street Could Talk, though others may recognize her for her roles in Mad Men, Dear White People, Chi-Raq, and Empire
