Jordan Peele Looking To Remake Candyman

Even as he's busy filming his follow-up to Oscar-winning horror Get Out, Jordan Peele is using his producing powers to generate any number of other projects, including a new Twilight Zone series. According to the team at Bloody Disgusting, he's in talks to nab the rights to cult 1990s horror pic Candyman.

Originally adapted from The Forbidden, a short story published in Clive Barker's Books Of Blood, the 1992 film introduced Tony Todd as the iconic urban legend, a slaughtered spirit who appears if one says his name five times while looking in a mirror and wreaks bloody havoc. It was followed by two sequels (though neither are remembered as fondly) and has been the subject of the usual remake chatter for years.

Peele's Monkeypaw Productions company is aiming to grab its chance to make a new version, though there is no word on whether Peele would look to direct it – the idea of a successful black man who fathers a child with a white woman in 1890 and is then lynched, mutilated and ultimately killed with bees by the father of his lover is certainly something he could explore – or if he'll shepherd any eventual film for someone else to make.

Three brilliant visionaries set off in a charged battle for the future in THE CURRENT WAR, the epic story of the cutthroat competition that literally lit up the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch is Thomas Edison, the celebrity inventor on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new DC technology. On the eve of triumph, his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), who believes he and his partner, the upstart genius Nikolai Tesla (Nicholas Hoult), have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with AC current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history, establishing for future Titans of Industry the need to break all the rules.
