Kyle MacLachlan Starring in Eli Roth’s ‘The House With a Clock in Its Walls’

Kyle MacLachlan, who returned on Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, has joined Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in the cast of The House With a Clock in Its Walls, the Universal/Amblin adaptation of the 1973 John Bellairs horror book illustrated by Edward Gorey, Deadline reports.

Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Death Wish, Hostel, Green Inferno) is directing, and Eric Kripke wrote the script based on the novel. It tells the tale of a recently orphaned 10-year-old boy who discovers a world of hidden passageways, magic and danger in his uncle’s old house.

MacLachlan will play Isaac Izard, the sinister original owner of the house.

Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt are producing with Kripke. The exec producers include William Sherak, Tracey Nyberg and Laeta Kalogridis.

    Never thought I’d see this three people together in a movie, let alone an Eli Roth one. I’m curious.

  • MeeGhoulz

    Kyle deserves the love!

  • Elizabeth

    I loved this book as a kid! I hope Roth doesn’t eff it up.

  • Jada Maes

    Sigh… I kind of wanted to see Roth grow up and become more serious about his art. Then, unfortunately, I saw Knock Knock. Maybe this’ll be the one, but I doubt it.

    • Now Eli Roth has major studio gigs with both DEATH WISH 2017 and this film project,maybe he might be growing up a little(especially if he is dealing with serious major studios).

      • Jada Maes

        Depends… Is he maturing as a filmmaker, or are the studios hiring him because he’s the next Colin Trevorrow? We shall see.
