Synopsis: A reboot of Candyman, the 1992 horror classic adapted from Clive Barker’s short story The Forbidden. The new Candyman is being billed as a “spiritual sequel” to the original and returns to the neighborhood where the legend began: the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood.

Note: Jordan Peele is also a producer on this project. I need to see the film to better identify people. Release date moved from June 12, 2020 to September 25, 2020. Release date pushed again to October 16, 2020. So much for a date. Release date pushed to sometime in 2021.
