Eli Roth’s ‘The House With a Clock in its Walls’ Gets 2018 Release

It was announced yesterday that 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 not only adds Colleen Camp (who also appeared in Roth’s Knock Knock) to the growing cast, but reveals a September 21, 2018, release date.

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.

    Eli Roth has yet to make a great film. He’s made some bad ones, and a few mediocre movies, but never a truly good one. So when a new Eli Roth project comes along, I don’t get excited.

  • Don Peterson

    Damn, Colleen Camp used to be so hot. Yvette!!

    • Micah Unice

      I mean…she just turned 65.

    Oh look! Another Eli Roth film people will wet themselves over until it’s released and then bitch about how bad it is

    • Wes Draven

      He’s just, … I just, … I want him to be good.

  • Regarding the pic above, this already looks shit.

      The pic above is from Roth’s last movie, Knock Knock.

    Doesn’t sound like a Roth project at all. Kinda disappointing for fans like myself who have been eagerly awaiting a new Roth horror flick to hear about this Disney sounding premise for his next project…
    I think I’ll pass.

    • Wes Draven

      I like that he’s trying something different.

    eli roth gets a hell of a lot of support out of hollywood for never having done anything particularly good.

    Some people seem to get special treatment down there.

  • Dennis Chenier

    Cate Blanchett? No, thanks!
