The CraftOh, Hollywood, first you destroyed our memories of the '80s with terrible remakes of "Fame," "Footloose," and "Robocop." Now, you're going after the '90s, too?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is remaking "The Craft," the 1996 teen witch thriller starring Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, and Rachel True. They've hired Leigh Janiak ("Honeymoon") to co-write and direct the film.

(As an aside, it is cool they hired a female director in the midst of the ACLU's discrimination suit.)

In the original, Tunney transfers to a new school, where she befriends three aspiring witches. Her own powers can complete their coven and allow them to tap into some serious magic. We loved the dark lipstick, the layered chain necklaces, the fishnets. But it's hard to imagine all of that translating to the teens of the Teens. Why even call upon the power of Manon when there's probably an app for that?

And can anyone really fill the shoes of crazy Fairuza Balk?
