‘CANDYMAN’ Reboot Begins Filming, Full Cast Revealed!

Principal photography on Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures’ Candyman is now underway in Chicago, and we’ve got the full cast list to share with you guys courtesy of Bloody-Disgusting. Joining the previously announced cast of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Us, Aquaman), Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk, Dear White People), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits, Utopia) and Colman Domingo (Euphoria, If Beale Street Could Talk); we have Brian King (The Chi, Boss), Rebecca Spence (Princess Cyd, Public Enemies), Kyle Kaminsky (One Night in Hollywood, DriverX), and a trio of Chicago stage veterans—Carl Clemons-Hopkins (Hamilton, Dreamgirls), Cedric Mays and Christiana Clark—have also joined the cast; alongside two well-known local broadcast news anchors/reporters Nancy Pender (formerly with WFLD-FOX/32) and Pam Jones (currently with WGN-AM/720). Additionally, Tony Todd (who played the titular role in the previous three films) will have a part in this new film, but it hasn’t been confirmed or denied if he will appear as Candyman, another character or if it’ll be a supporting role or a cameo. Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) is directing from a script written by Jordan Peele (Us, Get Out) and Win Rosenfeld, who are both also producing via their Monkeypaw Productions.

The film is described as a spiritual sequel to the original 1992 film, taking place in a gentrified area of Chicago where the notorious Cabrini-Green projects once stood….and where the legend of Candyman was born.

Candyman is scheduled to hit theaters June 12, 2020.
