And the teenager goth girl inside of me just died a little!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is remaking the 1996 supernatural teen thriller, which SUCKS, but the one consolation prize being up-and-coming horror filmmaker Leigh Janiak will write and direct the new version. Janiak will co-write the script with Phil Graziadei, who also co-wrote breakthrough movie Honeymoon. She seems cool as hell, but still…Honeymoon is her ONLY movie, aside from assisting a bunch of producers.
The beloved original starred Robin Tunney, who arrives at a Catholic school and befriends a trio of wannabe witches, played by Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True. The three girls are witches and welcome Rachel, a “natural” witch, into their 90’s out goth fold. It’s SO. GOOD. I can’t imagine this is gonna be better, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t curious about what a remake would look like…
