Along with being an actress, lifestyle blogger, and all-around ageless bohemian goddess, Rachel True, who you absolutely remember from The Craft, also happens to be a tarot card reader. This week, an La Weekly writer published her account of going to Echo Park's House of Intuition with a friend who was going through a breakup; the two were offered a tarot reading and were surprised (and delighted) to find none other than teen witch Rochelle Zimmerman holding the deck. Now 50 years old (and looking exactly the same as she did in the movie, which came out two decades ago - casual), Rachel has apparently been interested in magic and healing energy since way before playing Rochelle. "The [tarot] cards . . . help me articulate the situation; and then I use my intuition to kind of springboard off of that," she said. "I find that a lot of people have a misconception that »

Back in May 2015, it was announced that director Leigh Janiak would be directing a remake of the cult 1996 supernatural thriller The Craft, which was later revealed to be a “quasi-sequel” picking up some 20 years after the original.
It’s been all quiet on the project since then, but now The Tracking Board is reporting that 10 Cloverfield Lane screenwriter Daniel Casey has been brought in to do a rewrite of the script, which was original penned by Janiak and her Honeymoon partner Phil Graziadei.

Sony gives its reboot of The Craft a push forward by hiring a new writer...
Sony, which already has a fresh take on Jumanji and Flatliners heading to cinemas this year (in separate films, we should note, not an odd crossover movie), is now set to definitely press ahead with a reboot of the 1990s favourite, The Craft.
The original film, that was directed and co-written by Andrew Fleming, centred on a bunch of teenage witches, and a girl who makes friends with them. It would be fair to say that, notwithstanding its relatively weak box office performance, it has many fans, to whom the movie means much. The new film is set to be directed by Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon), but things have been quiet regarding it for the past year or two, since word of the project first landed (and the internet, er, had its say »
Almost exactly two years ago, Sony Pictures brought on filmmaker Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon) to direct their upcoming The Craft follow-up, and to co-write the script with her writing partner Phil Graziadei. We haven't heard much on this project until now, with the studio bringing on Daniel Casey (10 Cloverfield Lane) to rewrite the script. It is believed that the studio bringing in this new writer is an indication that they're eager to move forward and get production rolling.
The Tracking Board broke the news earlier today, but it isn't ultimately clear if Daniel Casey is starting from scratch with a page-one rewrite, or if elements of Leigh Janiak and Phil Graziadei's script will remain intact. Leigh Janiak is still attached to direct, with producer Douglas Wick revealing last May that The Craft 2 isn't a reboot, but instead a sequel that takes place 20 years after the original movie, set in modern day. »

Sony Pictures has been looking to invoke the spirit since they set Honeymoon co-writer/director Leigh Janiak to direct a new The Craft movie back in May of 2015. About one year later, it was revealed that the new movie would be more of a sequel than a remake of the beloved 1996 coming-of-age film about surviving high school, discovering yourself, making new friends... and performing witchcraft with them. Although it's been a while since we've heard any news updates on the new Craft movie, it's now being reported that a new writer has come aboard the project.
According to The Tracking Board, Daniel Casey has been hired by Sony to do rewrites on the script for the new Craft movie, which was written by Janiak with Honeymoon co-writer Phil Graziadei. Casey is reportedly also working on Fede Alvarez's adaptation of the comic book series Incognito and previously did some rewrites on 10 Cloverfield Lane. »

Image Source: The CW Riverdale is loaded with the best young talent Hollywood has to offer, but the parental figures are nothing to sneeze at, either. Of course they're all wildly attractive, but they're also all veteran actors. Luke Perry, aka Fred Andrews, is a TV legend thanks to Beverly Hills, 90210. Mädchen Amick, aka Alice Cooper, got her start on Twin Peaks. But what about Fp Jones? You know that face from somewhere. Of course you do - he's played by the forever sexy Skeet Ulrich. Ulrich broke onto the scene in the late '90s with roles in teen hits like The Craft and Boys. It was his portrayal of Billy Loomis in the original Scream, however, that solidified his place in pop culture history. Image Source: Miramax After his breakout role, he appeared in films like As Good as It Gets and The Newton Boys. He starred in the 2003 series Miracle, »

Alien Day in April may have been filled with Xenomorph-related news, but MTV took center stage by announcing that season 3 of Scream will feature an entirely new cast, story, and setting. While fans of the show are still saying goodbye to the Lakewood survivors from the first two seasons, character details for the series' new group of high schoolers have been revealed.
TVLine has unveiled the details for five characters from the upcoming third season of Scream. While these descriptions are likely a good template of what to expect, don't be surprised if the exact names and all of the details don't translate fully to the screen versions of the characters, as sometimes the casting information isn't 100% used in the final product.
From TVLine: "* First up is Dion, a Michael B. Jordan-esque football player on track to score a college scholarship — that is, until a masked killer uses Dion’s darkest secrets against him, »

Love and witchcraft are not usual bedfellows. Most of the time when we see a witch on screen she is wicked and is far too filled with hate to be bothered by love. Sometimes though we so get a witch on screen that is interested in getting her heart’s desire and ultimately uses her powers to help herself out. Often though, these spells don’t quite work out as intended.
The Love Witch opens on Friday and sees young woman Elaine on the hunt for love. After her divorce she’s feeling rather lonely and whilst seeking someone to shower with all the love she has contained within her, starts brewing love potions. However, there’s a slight hiccup and her would-be suitors start turning up dead.
A love spell gone awry is nothing new to the world of film and television. Here’s a run down of our favourite mishaps. »
