Michiel Huisman Set to Star in Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House Series

We learned back in April that Mike Flanagan will write, direct, and executive produce Netflix’s upcoming “The Haunting of Hill House” adaptation; and now we have the first casting news to share.

Shirley Jackson’s horror drama The Haunting of Hill House was previously adapted into two feature-length films, one in 1963 and one in 1999. Per THR, “Game of Thrones” star Michiel Huisman is the first actor cast in the streaming giant’s reboot of the films and book.

Ordered straight to series, the 10-episode drama is a modern re-imagining of  Jackson’s classic 1959 novel. The story centers on four people living in an 80-year-old mansion. Huisman (“Orphan Black,” The Invitation) will take on the role of 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 Paramount Television drama is co-produced by Flanagan’s partner, Trevor Macy. Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank are also exec producing.

Look for more soon!
