Jordan Peele is not only a producer, but one of the co-writers of the 2020 version of Candyman. The 'spiritual sequel' to the beloved 1992 horror movie which starred Tony Todd as the hook wielding supernatural killer.
The 2020 Candyman film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as a visual artist named Anthony McCoy who moves into a luxury loft in a rundown Chicago neighborhood of Cabrini Green with his girlfriend and gallery director Brianna Cartwright, played by Teyonah Parris.
The new trailer doesn't make it clear who is playing Candyman exactly but the trailer does hint that Abdul- Mateen II's character is possessed by the spirit and that it's possible that he could still be played by Todd. The 2020 Candyman will be out in theaters on June 12th.
