Tony-nominated actor and playwright Colman Domingo (The Scottsboro Boys) and Angels in America's Nathan Stewart-Jarrett have signed on to Jordan Peele's feature remake of Candyman, joining a cast that includes Teyonah Parris (Slave Play) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, most recently seen in Peele's horror film Us.

The film, according to Deadline, has begun shooting in Chicago with a release date set for June 2020. Nia DaCosta (Little Woods) directs.

Candyman is a "a spiritual sequel" to Benard Rose’s 1992 gothic horror movie—about a murderous man who is summoned to reality through a mirror—which was originally based on Clive Barker’s short story The Forbidden. In Peele's version, the Candyman returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood, where the legend began.
