Peele to write-produce Candyman  sequel

Los Angeles: Filmmaker Jordon Peele, who directed last year's horror thriller Get Out, is all set to co-write and co-produce a sequel to the 1992 horror movie Candyman.

The original film featured Tony Todd as the hook-weilding supernatural killer who, according to a legend appears after his name is called five times, reported Entertainment Weekly. Bernard Rose directed the film from a script by Clive Barker, based on his short story The Forbidden. MGM has partnered with Monkeypaw Productions' Peele and Win Rosenfeld to produce a "re-imagining" of Candyman.

The film, being called a "spiritual sequel" to the original, will be directed by Nia DaCosta from a script by Rosenfeld and Peele. The story of the film returns to the same neighbourhood where the legend of 'Candyman' began, a section of Chicago where the housing projects once stood.
