I smell...a sequel. The rumors were confirmed back in December of 2020 that the beloved cult classic Hocus Pocus would get a sequel after nearly three decades since the original film's release. Unfortunately, the project experienced a slight delay during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it looks like things are finally progressing and the set is coming wicked close to home.

Hocus Pocus 2 was set to film in Salem this summer, and the news overjoyed so many fans. There was a rumor that the film would also make its way to Rhode Island to shoot a few scenes at some point, but nothing was confirmed until Wednesday, September 8.

Specifically seeking people with dance experience, men with shoulder-length hair or longer, and young adults ages 18 to 22 years old."
