Snyder Reveals Original “Justice League” Plans

Actress-turned-filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones (“Band Aid,” “Life in Pieces”) will replace Leigh Janiak at the helm of the upcoming “The Craft” reboot that has long been in the works at Sony Pictures.













With a cast that utilized some notable actresses of the time, including then Party of Five star Neve Campbell as well as Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney and Rachel True, The Craft joined other short lived and somewhat ahead of its time efforts to put all female ensembles into roles that traditionally would have been taken up by men. Other films to attempt this were 1991’s Thelma and Louise, which took on the typically male, buddy road movie trope, as well as 1994’s Drew Barrymore-led western Bad Girls. The Craft’s concept of a teen girl arriving at a new school and falling in with a group of outcasts was much more relatable to teens, however, and with the current push in Hollywood to create more diverse content, The Craft is a film that seems in need of being rebooted for a new generation.

Blumhouse Productions have come onboard to produce the project which Lister-Jones will also adapt the script for. Jason Blum, Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce.
