Light as a feather, stiff as a board.

Sony has greenlit a rebooted version of the 1996 cult hit The Craft, which focused on a quartet of teen witches, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Indie horror filmmaker Leigh Janiak, who wrote and directed last year’s Honeymoon, has been tasked with the remake – she’ll co-write with Phil Graziadei, who worked on the Honeymoon script with her.

The original film, which starred Robin Tunney as the newest addition to a trio of witches played by Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True, has become a classic for its mix of teen drama and supernatural horror.

Despite receiving mixed reviews (it currently sits at 50 percent at Rotten Tomatoes), the film opened at No. 1 at the box office and grossed nearly $25 million domestically on an estimated $15 million budget.
