Any horror fan worth his or her salt is very familiar with the name Shirley Jackson. Way back in the Sixties she was responsible for unleashing probably one of the greatest and most influential ghost stories of our time, The Haunting of Hill House, upon a terrified audience. Now decades after it was first released, her book We Have Always Lived in the Castle is set to get the big screen treatment.
THR reports that Michael Douglas’ Further Films has hired Mark Kruger (producer/writer on “The 4400″) to pen the screenplay for the adaptation, which revolves around sisters Merricat and Connie Blackwood and their uncle Julian, a not-so-normal family who have been forced to live in seclusion after several other members of their family ended up getting poisoned. Things go along as well as can be for our trio until a mysterious long-lost cousin shows up showing what is sure to be an unhealthy interest in the family fortune.
