As huge fans of Mike Flanagan’s work, we’re very excited about what he’s going to do with Netflix’s updated The Haunting Of Hill House. Now, he’s added three of his previous collaborators to the cast of the 10-part TV series.
Deadline reports that Elizabeth Reaser (Young Adult, Twilight), Henry Thomas (ET, Gangs Of New York) and Kate Siegel will join Carla Gugino and Game Of Thrones‘ Michiel Huisman in the show. Reaser and Thomas both starred in Flanagan’s Ouija: Origin Of Evil, and the latter is also starring in his film of Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game alongside Gugino. Siegel was the star of Flanagan’s Netflix film Hush, which she also co-wrote, and she’s in Gerald’s Game too. Clearly, Flanagan likes to keep the same group of people around him.
As was to be expected, there’s no new information on the plot of the show, nor is there any information about who these three will be playing. All we know is that “the Netflix version of The Haunting Of Hill House draws from the original classic ghost story while expanding on the mythology of the Crane family.”
We’d also recommend checking out Mick Garris’ Post Mortem podcast episode with Flanagan, in which the filmmaker talks about his career and discusses The Haunting Of Hill House (without giving anything away, of course…)
The Haunting Of Hill House will be available on Netflix in 2018. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow
