'The Craft' Star 'Would Love To Do' A Sequel, And That Just Sounds Magical
If you were a teen in the 90s, then chances are your "bad girl" phase was defined by three things: way too much eyeliner, replacing all your pink clothes with black ones, and of course, most importantly, watching The Craft on repeat about a hundred times.
Starring Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True as a group of witches who torment those who wrong them even slightly with their black magic, the movie was pretty much every angsty girl's dream. The leads were total badasses, the people they got revenge on were complete douchebags (especially Skeet Ulrich as Chris Hooker), and above all else, it was stylish as hell.
It's been over 20 years since we last heard from our favorite witches, and they've since been replaced by entirely different kinds of witches in hit franchises like Harry Potter and Wicked.
However, at least one of the ladies of The Craft wants to bring them back, and personally, I couldn't be happier about the idea.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Robin Tunney, who starred in The Craft as high school newcomer Sarah Bailey, talked about how she'd love to reprise the role if it was given the proper treatment:
"I feel like if it came along and the script was good and I actually thought it was going to be something...I want them to find a great director. I think they've gone through a lot of writers. If it was something where I felt like they were going to do it well, and also find a way, because it's been so much time, you can't just do a sequel. I think on some level, it totally has to, in order to feel relevant, I think it should be maybe funnier or something."
The original movie ultimately had a pretty intense ending, so maybe injecting a little more humor into it wouldn't be a bad idea. I mean, who knows what kind of shenanigans the group could be getting up to over the last 20 years?
"I feel like in order to make it seem culturally relevant, they need to do something [new] and do it quite well. They just can't pick it up where it left off and it's all of our kids or something," Tunney pointed out. "Generations of people have watched it. It's the idea of somebody just trying to monetize that and not caring if it's good or not would be sad. I would love to do it if I thought it was going to be cool. I'm so proud of the fact that I was in a movie that has been loved by so many generations of people and watched at so many sleepovers. It's an honor."
