'The Craft' Remake Taps Lovie Simone To Star As One Of The Four Leads

Blumhouse and Columbia Pictures' remake of the cult classic film, The Craft, has tapped Greenleaf star Lovie Simone as one of its leads.

The film will also star Gideon Adlon, Zoey Luna and Cailee Spaeny.

The original film, released in 1996, starred Rachel True, Neve Campbell, Robin Tunney and Fairuza Balk as a quartet of teenage girls who are also witches that conjure up chaos. The film was a surprise success, topping the U.S. box office in its opening weekend and eventually grossing a total of $55.7 million on a $15 million budget.

A remake of The Craft is certainly something in Blumhouse's wheelhouse. The production company has produced several successful horror films, such as Get Out and the Halloween reboot.

Simone also recently starred in the Sundance selection, Selah and the Spades, which has been picked up by Amazon. The streamer is also developing a series based on the film.

Deadline broke the news of the new castings.
