Mike Flanagan & Netflix’s MIDNIGHT CLUB Adds Killer New Cast
Doctor Sleep director Mike Flanagan is adapting Christopher Pike’s 1994 novel The Midnight Club for Netflix starring A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp!
And nearly a month after starting production, the show continues to expand its cast.
This time with Iman Benson (Alexa & Katie), Larsen Thompson (Boléro), William B. Davis (The X-Files), Crystal Balint (The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco), and Patricia Drake (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants).
The book tells the tale of Rotterdam Home, a hospice for terminally ill teenagers where a group of patients gathers together at midnight to share scary stories. They eventually make a pact that whichever of them dies first will contact the others from beyond the grave. Moo-Haha. Elan Gale, James Flanagan, and also Chinaka Hodge will write the series which Flanagan will create with Leah Fong. Flanagan and Fong will executive produce with Trevor Macy and Julia Bicknell.
Netflix’s 10-episode horror series will star Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard, and Sauriyan Sapkota as the titular club.
Leah Fong will executive produce the series alongside Flanagan, Trevor Macy, and Julia Bicknell. Flanagan and Fong worked together on The Haunting of Bly Manor.
