Joining the previously announced Carla Gugino (Gerald’s Game) and Kate Siegel (Hush), Deadline reports that Timothy Hutton (“American Crime”) will star in Netflix’s 10-episode re-imagining of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 novel, “The Haunting of Hill House.“
The site notes that “no character information is being revealed, though Hutton is believed to be playing the father of the Crane siblings — played by Huisman, Reaser and Siegel — with Gugino as the mother.”
Michel Huisman, Elizabeth Reaser and Henry Thomas also star.
The Netflix version of “The Haunting of Hill House” draws from the original classic ghost story while expanding on the mythology of the Crane family.
Mike Flanagan is writing and directing as well as executive producing alongside his producing partner, Trevor Macy, and Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
The series hails from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and Paramount TV.
