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.
