One of the hottest young stars in Hollywood right now is Finn Wolfhard, and now comes word on the actor’s latest project.
As per Variety, Wolfhard – best known to genre fans for Stranger Things and IT – will be delving in to horror once more with The Turning. Based on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw – itself already the subject of several adaptations – the story will centre on Mackenzie Davis as she becomes the nanny to a pair of orphans who just so happen to live in an eerie haunted house. Wolfhard will be playing one of the orphans in the adap.
If you remember back, The Turning was actually only weeks away from shooting last year before the project was put on hold. Back then, the film was known as Haunted and had Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie and Marvel’s Luke Cage’s Alfre Woodard attached. It was actually producer Steven Spielberg’s decision to scrap the picture and essentially start from scratch with a new script and cast.
With The Runaways’ Floria Sigismondi on board to direct, The Turning is expected to start production early next year.
