Yahya Abdul-Mateen II In Talks To Join CANDYMAN


Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) is in negotiations to join Jordan Peele’s Candyman sequel.

The new Candyman will return to the neighborhood where the legend began: the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood. The original “Candyman” was released in 1992 and follows a graduate student who explores the legend of Candyman while writing a thesis on urban legends.

Candyman is set to be released in theaters on June 12, 2020.
