Netflix producing modern re-imagining of Haunting of Hill House with Amblin

So it seems Mike Flanagan (OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL, OCULUS) is working with Netflix and Amblin Entertainment to create a modern re-imagining of the classic 1959 horror novel HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE. It will be adapted into a 10-episode limited series, and will be the first narrative show produced by Amblin TV (their first being the docuseries FIVE CAME BACK).

This also wouldn't be the first adaptation of the novel, as both THE HAUNTINGs (1963 and the shitty 1999 remake) were both based on the novel. Here's the synopsis for the book:

The story concerns four main characters: Dr. John Montague, an investigator of the supernatural; Eleanor Vance, a shy young woman who resents having lived as a recluse caring for her demanding invalid mother; Theodora, a flamboyant, bohemian, possibly lesbian artist; and Luke Sanderson, the young heir to Hill House, who is host to the others. Dr. Montague hopes to find scientific evidence of the existence of the supernatural. He rents Hill House for a summer and invites as his guests several people whom he has chosen because of their past experience with paranormal events.

So what about you Schmoes? You down for another HAUNTING? Either way, sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: When I first read the initial report, I thought it was a series based on HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL.
