Candyman 2 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.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II stars as Candyman. He best known for playing Black Manta in Aquaman. And Jordan Peele produces.
The movie Candyman arrived in theaters in 1992 and took in a tepid $25 million, but became a cult classic upon its VHS and cable TV release.
