According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cailee Spaeny will take on the lead role of Hannah, in the remake directed by Zoe Lister-Jones.

Here is the brief film synopsis of the film:

The story centers on Hannah, a high school outcast who falls into a friendship with three other young women and begins experimenting with witchcraft. They unleash a power that at first seems to solve problems in their lives but slowly consumes them with unforeseen costs.

This casting news makes me very happy. I think Cailee will be the perfect person to take on this role. She can convey that same naivety and then transform to a badass the way that Robin Tunney did as Sarah in the original film.

While Cailee does not have very many acting credits to her name, I am certain she will be able to pull this off. I recently saw her in Bad times at the El Royale so I have confidence she will nail this role.
