According to Deadline, Netflix‘s upcoming TV series adaptation of “The Haunting of Hill House” has once again expanded its cast. The latest adaptation of the classic Shirley Jackson horror novel has enlisted Henry Thomas (E.T.: The Extraterrestrial), Elizabeth Reaser (The Twilight Saga), and Kate Siegel. The series is being adapted by filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Absentia, Before I Wake), who will presumably direct most (if not all) of the 10-episode first season.
All three performers have previously worked with Flanagan in recent films. Thomas appeared in Oujia: Origin of Evil and the upcoming Stephen King adaptation, Gerald’s Game. Reaser also appeared in Ouija: Origin of Evil. Siegel has the most previous collaborations, having worked with Flanagan on Oculus, Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and Gerald’s Game. They join the previously cast Carla Gugino and Michel Huisman.
The 1959 novel was previously adapted into films in 1963 and 1999. Flanagan’s take will reportedly delve deeper into the mythology of the house, as well as the Crane family that resided within it. The project is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, via their Amblin Television division. Amblin seems to be making a habit of working with horror filmmakers these days, having also recently made production deals with Eli Roth (Hostel, Death Wish) on two upcoming projects.
