Eli Roth Returns to Directing… for Netflix. Will Helm ‘Hemlock Grove’ Series!

Netflix is finalizing a deal with Gaumont International Television for a 13-episode series order to “Hemlock Grove”, an hourlong thriller/horror series executive produced and directed by Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel), reports Deadline.

“Hemlock Grove” is based on Brian McGreevy’s upcoming gothic horror novel of the same name, which will be released by Farrar, Straus and Giroux on March 27.

Set against the backdrop of our darkest myths, adolescent deceptions, ravenous relationships and rumors of a werewolf, the series re-imagines everything it means to be a monster as reflected in the struggle to be human.

McGreevy will help adapt his book, co-writing the script with his writing partner Lee Shipman. The feature writing duo, which has made multiple appearances on Hollywood’s Black List of hot screenplays, is currently working on a reimagining of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” for Warner Bros, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Mad Hatter Entertainment.
