David Duchovny Has Joined the Remake of The Craft

For some reason, two-time Golden Globe-winning X-Files and Californication actor David Duchovny has joined the cast of Blumhouse and Sony Pictures’ remake of The Craft. I’m a big fan of Duchovny and I think he can do better than this, but hey… I guess it a job!

Duchovny will star alongside the previously announced cast of Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna and Nicholas Galitzine. This remake of the 1996 film seems completely pointless to me. But maybe writer-director Zoe Lister-Jones will be able to make a version of the film that’s better than the original, because I did not like the original.

The original film starred Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True as a group of three wannabe witches, who are looking for a fourth member for their rituals. A new student with a telekinetic gift, played by Robin Tunney, transfers into their school and they befriend her.

David Duchovny Takes on The Craft Remake
Blumhouse has cast X-Files star David Duchovny in their upcoming The Craft Remake. Zoe Lister-Jones is on board as the writer, director, and executive producer of the remake. Duchovny joins previously announced cast members, Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, and Nicholas Galitzine. The original movie came out in 1996 and helped to influence a ton of movies and TV shows, so it seems only fitting that a remake would arrive now, 23 years after the original movie became a cult horror classic.

At this time, it's unclear who David Duchovny will be playing in The Craft remake. The two-time Golden Globe winning X-Files and Californication actor has also tried his hand at directing over the years, directing episodes of the aforementioned shows along with Aquarius and Bones. Duchovny made his directorial debut with 2004's House of D, which he wrote and starred in, along with Robin Williams, Tea Leoni,

‘The Craft’ Casts Spell Over David Duchovny As ‘X-Files’ Actor Joins Blumhouse-Sony Revamp

‘The Craft’ Casts Spell Over David Duchovny As ‘X-Files’ Actor Joins Blumhouse-Sony Revamp
Exclusive: The two-time Golden Globe winning X-Files and Californication actor has joined Blumhouse/Red Wagon Entertainment/Sony’s reboot of The Craft.

David Duchovny will star alongside the already announced cast of Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna and Nicholas Galitzine. Zoe Lister-Jones is writing, directing, and executive producing the reimagining of the 1996 film. Timing feels ripe for a reimagining as the original film in the mid-90’s gave way to an onslaught of TV series and films that were both witch-themed and centered on female empowerment. The first movie, which starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, Christine Taylor, Rachel True, and Skeet Ulrich followed a newcomer at a Catholic prep high school who falls in with a trio of outcast teenage girls who practice witchcraft, and wage curses against those who tick them off.

Blumhouse’s The Craft reboot finds its coven of witches

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Blumhouse Pictures have found their coven of witches for the upcoming remake of the cult 1996 film The Craft.

In addition to the previously announced Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royale), The Craft is set to feature Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf) and Zoey Luna (Pose) as the group of wannabe witches played in the original movie by Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True.

The new version of The Craft is being directed by actress turned filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones (Band Aid) and follows high school outcast Hannah, “who falls into a friendship with three other young women and begins experimenting with witchcraft.

Blumhouse Has Revealed Its Coven for the Upcoming Reboot of The Craft

We have some casting news for you today for the upcoming reboot of the film The Craft. Blumhouse tweeted out the cast list of the four girls who will star as the teenage coven. The girls are Cailee Spaeny (Bad Times at the El Royal), Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Lovie Simone (Greenleaf), and Zoey Luna (Pose). All these girls are pretty young up and comers, so I don’t know a lot of their work yet, besides that Spaeny played a pretty weird and annoying young lady in Bad Times at the El Royal.

I liked the original 1996 version of The Craft with Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True, but that was probably because I was 12 when it came out, and I was trying very hard to be dark and weird and shocking at that age. I’m not sure it would hold up at this point. But

Adlon recently spoke with Gold Derby contributing writer Tony Ruiz about having a writers’ room on “Better Things” for the first time, how she blends comedy into the series and what’s to come in Season 4. Watch the exclusive webchat above and read the complete interview transcript below.

Scream Factory Blu-ray Reviews: The Craft Collector’s Edition, The Clovehitch Killer, and The Legend Of The 7 Golden Vampires

Scream Factory’s slate of Blu-ray releases continues to expand in all directions, from recent indie releases to beloved cult favorites to the movie classic and esoteric, as evidenced by several of its recent offerings. Here are just three new Scream Factory titles that represent the breadth of the company’s constantly growing catalogue.

The Clovehitch Killer: First up is 2018’s The Clovehitch Killer, a serial killer drama from IFC midnight starring Dylan McDermott as a geeky suburban dad whose teenage son (Charlie Plummer) has begun to suspect he might be a serial killer. If that sounds a little like IFC’s I Am Not a Serial Killer from a few years back, that’s because the movies have a lot in common—though, without spoiling either one, I will say that Clovehitch is missing some of the other film’s more outlandish plot developments. More a drama than a traditional horror movie,
