Sophia Lillis may have had enough helping the Loser’s Club investigate Pennywise the Dancing Clown but now she’s off to River Heights as Nancy Drew in an all-new mystery!
Based on the best-selling mystery series, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, which is co-produced by Ellen DeGeneres, follows the long-running sleuth as she investigates a seemingly haunted house.
“After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!“
Starring Sophia Lillis, Sam Trammell, and Linda Lavin, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase was written by Nina Flore and John Herrera and was directed by Katt Shea.
It will open in theaters on March 15.
