Watch: Craft: Legacy director and stars discuss chance of a sequel

The cast and crew of horror reboot The Craft: Legacy all seem keen to return to that world for a potential sequel, if the first movie proves to be a success.

A reimagining of the 1990s cult hit The Craft, the movie follows a trio of teen witches who are able to form a coven and harness their powers when a new girl, played by Cailee Spaeny, proves to be their fourth point of the compass.

The movie leaves the door open for a potential sequel, which will of course be dependent on the way this film is received.

Writer-director Zoe Lister-Jones told Yahoo Movies UK it would be “a dream to continue this story and work with all of these incredible people again”, while star Lovie Simone said she’d agree to a sequel “yesterday”.

Gideon Adlon added: “One thousand percent. I had such an enriching experience on this project and, when I think about it now, I get filled with so much joy. So I would jump back in like that.”

Mission: Impossible star Michelle Monaghan, who plays the mother of Spaeny’s character, said she’d relish the opportunity to see the four girls work together again.

“They just had so much chemistry,” she said. “They're so dynamic and really, really fun to watch. So I'd like to see some more of that sorcery, for sure.”

The Craft: Legacy also stars David Duchovny and trans actress Zoey Luna, with Lister-Jones saying she wanted her movie to be a “celebration of diversity”.

The Craft: Legacy has divided movie critics, with an approval score of 49% on Rotten Tomatoes, from around 70 reviews.

Critics have praised the diverse casting and the willingness to engage with timely and important issues, but criticised the film for lacking some of the edge of the 1990s movie.

The first film was a surprise hit in 1996, earning more than $50m (£38.5m) at the worldwide box office from a budget of just $15m (£11.6m).

It has since gained a devoted cult following as one of the iconic depictions of outsider culture.

The Craft: Legacy is available only in cinemas now.
