The Haunting of Hill House adds Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Kate Siegel

Kate Siegel Mike Flanagan

Mike Flanagan will be surrounded by familiar faces when he embarks on making a 10 episode Netflix series based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, which previously served as the basis for the 1963 film THE HAUNTING and its 1999 remake.

Flanagan had already cast his GERALD'S GAME star Carla Gugino in the series, and now you can add to the list Henry Thomas (who has worked with Flanagan on GERALD'S GAME and OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL), Elizabeth Reaser (OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL), and Kate Siegel - who not only had roles in Flanagan's OCULUS, HUSH, OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL, and GERALD'S GAME, but also wrote HUSH with him and happens to be his wife. (Siegel and Flanagan are pictured together above.) 

A "modern reimagining" of Jackson's story, Flanagan's take on The Haunting of Hill House centers on 

four people living in an 80-year-old mansion.

Details on the characters Gugino, Thomas, Reaser, and Siegel will be playing have not been revealed. Also in the cast is Michiel Huisman, who will be working with Flanagan for the first time on this project. Huisman's character is 

Steven Crane, the oldest Crane sibling and a published writer of supernatural books — including a memoir about his family's time living at Hill House.

The Haunting of Hill House is being produced by Amblin TV and Paramount TV. Flanagan is executive producing the series with Trevor Macy, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank.
