One of the most popular cult classic favorites of the 1990’s happens to be The Craft, a movie which still resonates with audiences today. It’s this resonance that led to Blumhouse to develop a remake of The Craft, one which was expected to not be released until 2021. But in a year where anything seems to be possible, it looks like Blumhouse’s remake of The Craft might actually have a release date this October – and it appears to be headed straight to VOD.
According to an apparent press release from Amazon, the streaming site has listed the movie release as a part of their “New For October” lineup. Blumhouse’s remake of The Craft seems to be scheduled for October 27. This means the release of the film is only about a month away, which obviously makes this release something of a Halloween surprise.
Of course, this potential VOD release date of The Craft has yet to be confirmed by Blumhouse or Columbia Pictures. The only tip was accidentally given by Amazon, who noted the release date in their “New for October” press release that’s available in the “Available for Purchase or Rent on Prime Video” section. So while things could change, it seems like the plan for now is that The Craft will have a VOD release date on October 27, 2020.
And hopefully if this is an accurate release date, then we can expect some proper promotional material for the film soon – including some kind of trailer.
The Craft stars Cailee Spaeny, Gideon Adlon, Lovie Simone, Zoey Luna, Michelle Monaghan, and David Duchovny. The cast also includes Nicholas Galitzine, Charles Vandervaart, Donald MacLean Jr., Julian Grey, Hannah Gordon, Mike Dara, Owen Szabo, Chris Tomassetti, and Devin Cecchetto.
The film was written and directed by Zoe Lister-Jones. It was executive produced by Andrew Fleming, co-writer and director of the original film. Jason Blum, Douglas Wick, and Lucy Fisher are attached to the project as producers.
