As long as the residents remember, the housing project in the Cabrini Green neighborhood of Chicago was frightened by a horror story spread by word of mouth. This story is about a person hooked by a supernatural killer who is easily caught Called by those who dare to repeat his name five times. Looking in the mirror now, ten years after the last Cabrini building was demolished, a visual artist named Anthony McCoy and his girlfriend, the gallery director named Brianna Cartwright, moved into a luxurious place in Cabrini. Loft apartments have now become aristocratic, unable to live up to the millennial generation.

When Anthony’s painting career was on the verge of stagnation, an accidental meeting with the old painter of Cabrini Green exposed Anthony to the tragic and terrifying nature of the true story behind the Candy Man. Desire to maintain his position in the Chicago art world, Anthony began to explore these creepy details in his own studio. As a new nobility in painting, he unknowingly opened a complicated door to the past, which revealed him His own reason, and released a terrible wave of viral violence, he was in the process of collision of fate.

In September 2018, it was announced that Jordan Peele was negotiating to produce a sequel to the 1992 movie through his Monkeypaw Productions. Todd said in a 2018 interview with Nightmare on Movie Street: “I would rather let him do it. A wise person will have to be considerate and delve into who the Candy Man is and how he Why is it located in the first existence.”

In November 2018, it was confirmed that Peele will co-produce the film with Universal and MGM, and will co-produce the film with Win Rosenfeld under Nia DaCosta as the director. This film will be a “spiritual sequel” that takes place in the newly gentrified Cabrini Green cinema, where the old housing project development was once held in Chicago.

In January 2019, it was reported that FX’s Atlanta’s “Lex Stanfield” and “Sorry to Bother You” may appear in the movie, but not the main nominal character, but like Anthony McCoy ( An old version of Anthony McCoy, he is a visual artist who is interested in a candy man saga similar to the character of Helen Lyle played by Virginia Madsen. At the time, no one had said who would appear in the movie and whether Todd or any past actors would replay their roles. However, Todd talked about Peel in an interview with Entertainment Weekly and said: “I know he is a fan. I hope I can appear in the movie in some form. Doesn’t that make sense? However, this is Hollywood, so if it is not successful, I will not consider it myself. He added, “If this new movie succeeds, it will illuminate the original movie. I think the subject is more important than any individual, that’s what I mean. “

In February 2019, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II participated in a meeting to play McCoy, but was misreported as a meeting to portray a nominal character. In response to the news, Todd expressed his blessings on Twitter: “Cheers to the Candy Man, this is a beautiful character I have lived with him for 25 years. He brings grace and glory, as well as beautiful friends and family. I am honored that the spirits of Daniel Robitaille and Cabrini Green have risen again. The truth about power! However, it was finally announced that Todd would return to his position.

If Beale Street Could Talk’s actress Teyonah Parris played the opposite of the role played by Abdul-Mateen II as Anthony’s girlfriend Brianna Cartwright. Candyman’s main photography work started in early August 2019 and ended in the Chicago area in September 2019 (25-27), and some photos were taken near North Park in September. The film’s working name was published as “say my name” on the social media pages of some actors and staff. This word was used sparingly in the revised script and production set to make things “fly under the radar.”

Candyman was originally scheduled to release on June 12, 2020, by Universal Pictures, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was pushed to September 25 and then again to October 16, 2020, taking the previous release date of Halloween Kills.
