- The project was in active development back in 2004, but likely never came to fruition due to licensing issues. Here's a quote from Tony Todd back in 2004: "That problem that is going on much like many backstage workings, is determining who owns the "CANDYMAN" franchise. Which is strange to me because it's Clive's Character? But in dividing the first "CANDYMAN's" profits, the ownership went from Propaganda, to Sony, to Columbia, then to Artisan. Then Artisan became Lions Gate. As soon as it's all straightened out and it's determined who has to be paid before the film even gets written, then the movie will move forward."

- We would have seen a snow/blizzard element added to the film.
- Once rumored to be budgeted at $25-million (had it actually been made).

- Tony Todd revealed at a Movies Convention in LA years ago that the film would likely come out of New Line rather than Artisan this time.
