We still don’t know much at all about director Nia DaCosta‘s Candyman, billed as a “spiritual sequel” to the original and penned by Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld. It’s unclear how exactly the film connects to the original and if Tony Todd will be making any sort of appearance or not, but what we do know today is that two more actors have joined the cast.
Deadline reports that Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead, pictured above) and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits, below) have signed on to star in DaCosta’s Candyman.
The site adds that filming has begun this week in Chicago.
If Beale Street Could Talk actress Teyonah Parris will reportedly play the girlfriend of an art dealer obsessed with the legend of Candyman in the film. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will also star.
The new movie returns to the neighborhood where the legend began: the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood.
MGM will bring Candyman back to life on June 12, 2020.
