Hulu’s Stephen King Series Castle Rock Gets a Dose of Evil Dead and Carrie

Published

on

Castle Rock

Evil Dead‘s Jane Levy and Carrie‘s Sissy Spacek have joined the cast of Hulu’s “Castle Rock”, the series that will aim to blend elements of Stephen King’s universe into one cohesive journey, according to Deadline. Levy will play “…Jackie, the death-obsessed self-appointed historian of Castle Rock” while Spacek will take on the role of “Ruth Deaver, the estranged adoptive mother of Henry“. Henry is played by the recently confirmed André Holland.

The series, which hails from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, is based on the world created by Stephen King in his various works. It is named after Castle Rock, the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his novels, novellas, and short stories.

“Manhattan” creator Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason developed the project for television, based on characters and situations created by Stephen King, and serve as writers. They executive produce with Abrams, Ben Stephenson, and Liz Glotzer.

“Castle Rock” reunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot, and Warner Bros., which previously collaborated on event series “11.22.63” based on King’s same-named novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu, and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.

Synopsis:
A psychological horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, “Castle Rock” combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. “Castle Rock” is an original suspense/thriller — a reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One kind of came and went this past summer and I never got the chance to check it out in theaters. I fully planned to – if even just to see Chucky share the screen with Christine and Freddy – but alas, I was just too busy (?) to head to the multiplex.

But if you’re like me and missed the film in theaters, then you’ll be happy to hear that today we have word that the film will be hitting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD on July 24.  And for those of you who just can’t wait, the film will be hitting Digital July 3.

In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the OASIS to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—known as the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world.
