Netflix is adapting the classic possessed mansion thriller The Haunting of Hill House for its streaming service and they have just tapped Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Emerald City) to star in the series.
The 10-episode program also stars Timothy Hutton, Carla Gugino, Michael Huisman and Henry Thomas.
Based on the Shirley Jackson novel of the same name, The Haunting of Hill House will be directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Ouija, Oculus) from Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment.
According to Deadline, the series follows closely to its source material but also expounds upon the legend of the Crain family.
Two movies have already been made based upon the novel, one in 1963 and another in 1999, both versions released under the title The Haunting.
Netflix and producers are keeping tight-lipped about the characters and their backstories.
