Crispin Glover has delivered some amazing and often bizarre performances over the course of his career, gracing the horror genre with his unique presence in several films, including FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER and the 2003 remake of WILLARD. Glover is now returning to the genre again, signing on to co-star in director Stacie Passon's WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE.

Written by Passon and Mark Kruger, the film is based on a Shirley Jackson story that 

centers on an isolated family, The Blackwoods, who use rituals and talismans to ward off hostile townspeople. The clan has already lost four members to poisoning when a distant cousin arrives to maliciously secure the Blackwood fortune, at which point family secrets are unearthed.  

Glover joins a cast that includes Sebastian Stan, Taissa Farmiga, Alexandra Daddario, and Joanne Crawford. It had been reported that Willem Dafoe would be in the film, but Glover might be replacing him. 

Whether he's replacing Dafoe or not, Glover's role sounds like one he'll really be able to sink his teeth into: he'll be playing Uncle Julian Blackwood, "a man who due to extreme gangrene is confined to a wheelchair and morbidly obsesses over his wife and brother's mysterious deaths." One can only imagine what Glover will do with a character like that.
