Timothy Hutton Joins Coming Netflix Adaptation

Netflix is adapting Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 novel The Haunting Of Hill House.  Timothy Hutton will be taking on the lead role.  He joins Carla Gugino, Michel Huisman, Elizabeth Reaser, Kate Siegel and Henry Thomas. No character details have been revealed yet, however Hutton is believed to be playing the father of the Crane siblings — played by Huisman, Reaser and Siegel — with Gugino as the mother.

The 10 episode straight-to-series show comes from filmmaker Mike Flanagan, Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and Paramount TV. Flanagan is writing and directing as well as executive producing alongside his producing partner Trevor Macy, and Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.

Stay tuned, kids…
