Most of the young cast of Blumhouse’s reboot of ‘The Craft’ are relative newcomers, but the project has just added one face that should be familiar to fans of the supernatural– David Duchovny. His role was not revealed, but presumably, he’ll be a parent, teacher, or principal. (Just a guess.)
The new version of ‘The Craft’ will be written, directed, and executive produced by Zoe Lister-Jones. The new film stars Cailee Spaeny (‘Devs’), Gideon Adlon (‘The Society’), Lovie Simone (‘Greenleaf’), Zoey Luna (‘Pose’), and Nicholas Galitzine (‘Chambers’). The director of the original 1996 film, Andrew Fleming, will act as executive producer of the reboot.
The story centers on Hannah, a high school outcast who falls into a friendship with three other young women and begins experimenting with witchcraft. They unleash a power that at first seems to solve problems in their lives but slowly consumes them with unforeseen costs.
Spaeny is playing Hannah. It was earlier reported that the other three fledgling witches would be named Tabby, Lourdes, and Frankie, but it was not stated which of the announced actors is playing which character. They, of course, replace Robin Tunney as Sarah, Fairuza Balk as Nancy, Rachel True as Rochelle, and Neve Campbell as Bonnie from the original. That film also starred ’90s favorites Breckin Meyer, Christine Taylor, and Skeet Ulrich. (Galitzine is likely playing the Ulrich role.)
Duchovny is basically synonymous with his most famous role of Fox Mulder on the classic sci-fi series ‘The X-Files’ which originally aired on FOX from 1993-2002, and was then revived for two additional seasons in 2016 and 2018. In addition, Duchovny co-starred in two ‘X-Files’ theatrical movies. He won one Golden Globe Award for playing Mulder on ‘The X-Files’, and another for his role as Hank Moody on Showtime’s ‘Californication’ which aired for seven seasons from 2007-2014. He has published three novels and is in the process of adapting his 2016 book ‘Bucky F*cking Dent’ into a film.
It is not yet known when ‘The Craft’ will begin production or be released. Check back for updates!
