Let’s dig up a joke about Hocus Pocus and Leonardo DiCaprio to announce the director of the third chapter of the saga.
Development Hocus pocus 3and, accompanied by the news, the Collider website has fished out an interesting detail regarding the production of the first film of the saga, which was supposed to be one of the main characters Leonardo DiCaprio.
The actor himself spoke about this in an interview with Variety some time ago. Leonardo DiCaprio has been offered the role of Max Dennison in Hocus Pocus. Director Omri Katz had an appointment with DiCaprio but turned it down to go and star in Happy Birthday Mr. Grape. The director himself said of this audition:
It was authentic, sincere, focused and wild at the same time.
As a result, thanks to this rejection and his performance in Happy Birthday, Mr. Grape, Leonardo DiCaprio received an Oscar nomination. All in all, it was more than a good choice.
Meanwhile, the director of Hocus Pocus 3 was also found, which will be Ann Fletcher, who was already working on the second film of the saga. As for the script, the choice of “Hocus Pocus 2”, which fell on Jen D’Angelo, was confirmed in this case.
