Candyman reboot director

The Jordan Peele-produced Candyman reboot has found its director. Nia DaCosta, who helmed the 2018 indie film Little Woods, will bring Candyman back to life with a new film that will both reboot the character and serve as a spiritual sequel. The original Candyman, released in 1992, was inspired by a short story from Clive Barker. Bernard Rose directed that take, starring Tony Todd as the hook-handed Candyman, and Virginia Madsen as a grad student studying the Candyman legend.

sorry to bother you cast

LaKeith Stanfield has had a breakout year, following up his scene-stealing role in FX’s Atlanta with another standout performance as the lead in Boots Riley‘s indie hit Sorry to Bother You. But while Sorry to Bother You set Stanfield on an upward trajectory in Hollywood, that almost wasn’t the case. Riley revealed that Jordan Peele and Donald Glover almost landed the role of the telemarketer with an uncanny “white voice.” But in the end, it turned out fine for all three of them — Peele and Glover had pretty great years, too.
