Some good news hit the wire today relating to Netflix’s upcoming “The Haunting of Hill House” series as Deadline reports that Timothy Hutton has been tapped as a lead in the streaming service’s modern re-imagining of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 novel.
Hutton (“American Crime,” “Leverage”) joins the previously announced Carla Gugino, Michiel Huisman, Elizabeth Reaser, Kate Siegel, and Henry Thomas in the 10-episode straight-to-series drama, which hails from Mike Flanagan (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Gerald’s Game), Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV, and Paramount TV.
