One of the most eye-catching projects currently in development in Castle Rock, the Hulu series being based around the fictional town that appears in so many of Stephen King’s classic works. And now the series has moved to bring in two names who’ll certainly be familiar to horror hounds.
As per Deadline, the series has brought in Don’t Breathe and the Evil Dead remake’s Jane Levy and none other than genre icon Sissy Spacek. Spacek, of course, famously headlined Brian De Palma’s adaptation of King’s Carrie. The pair join Moonlight’s Andre Holland in Castle Rock. In the show, Levy will play a death-obsessed historian called Jackie, whilst Spacek will play Ruth Deaver, the adoptive mother of Holland’s Henry and someone who is a retired professor who potentially holds the key to Castle Rock’s eerie past.
Set in a world draped in famed King lore, Castle Rock is being developed by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. TV. The series will “combine the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.”SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
