"I hope that it’s scary as shit, but also meaningful. It’s a Jordan Peele project [Peele co-wrote and produced], so it’s going to be culturally important, but at the same time, you can’t do Candyman without being scary. If we hit those two things, we’ll be successful."
I may or may not have decided that this quote from Watchmen actor Yahya-Abdul Mateen II talking the Candyman reboot in the new issue of Interview Magazine (he's interviewed by his Aquaman co-star Jason Momoa!) was mostly worth sharing just because I wanted to share the deliciously suggestive photos of him that are alongside the chat, and this was the most interesting bit I could scrounge up from their somewhat banal conversation... but it is good to hear something, anything, on the Candyman's progress. Also... can we just with these photos?
