Netflix has just closed a deal for In the Tall Grass, a novella written by Stephen King and his son and fellow bestselling horror author Joe Hill, writes Deadline.
The Box, Straw Dogs and “Westworld’s” James Marsden is in negotiations to star, with Cube and Splice‘s Vincenzo Natali set to direct!
“After hearing a young boy’s cry for help, a sister and brother venture into a vast field of grass in Kansas but soon discover that there may be no way out.”
The film will be produced by Splice‘s Steve Hoban, Jimmy Miller at Mosaic, and M. Riley. Miller and Riley produced The Lazarus Effect.
The film will begin production this summer in Toronto. This becomes the third Netflix film with the horror maestro King, following Gerald’s Game and 1922.
