DEN OF GEEK – The mother of almost all ghost stories is coming to Netflix with a TV series adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 horror novel The Haunting of Hill House, which happens to be one of Stephen King’s favorite books. It was made into a classic piece of early 1960s cinema (and a 1990s remake), and will soon arrive at Netflix in a modernized form.

 

The Haunting of Hill House will arrive on Netflix in a 10-episode form, written, produced, and directed by Mike Flanagan, who directed Oculus, Hush and will adapt King’s Gerald’s Game into a movie. Flanagan will produce with his producing partner Trevor Macy for Amblin TV and Paramount TV.

 

Timothy Hutton joins The Haunting of Hill House as a lead actor, reports Deadline. While his character was not named, it is believed (but not confirmed,) that Hutton will portray the patriarch of the haunted house-owning Crane family, married to Carla Gugino’s matriarchal character.

 

Hutton came into prominence early in his career, winning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1981 for his role in director Robert Redford’s drama Ordinary People. He’s appeared in films such as Taps, Iceman, Made in Heaven, French Kiss, Kinsey, Secret Window and The Good Shepherd. However, later generations know him better as a TV mainstay with notable runs on American Crime and a longtime run as the mastermind of the justice-delivering rogues of Leverage.

 

The Haunting of Hill House Cast

 

Michiel Huisman has been tapped to star in Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, reports THR. In a revelation that may shed light on the context of this reboot series, Huisman will play a character named Steven Crane, a published author of supernatural-related books and the oldest living sibling of the Crane family. The Netherlands-native is best known for his role on HBO’s Game of Thrones as Daario Naharis. Besides roles in his native country, Huisman was notably seen in recurring roles on Orphan Black, Nashville, Treme, and miniseries Harley and the Davidsons, as well as films such as 2015’s The Age of Adaline and 2017’s The Ottoman Lieutenant. He has quite a full docket of film roles, notably in director Gideon Raff’s historical spy thriller Red Sea Diving Resort, which stars Chris Evans.

STRAIGHT – The cinematic adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s 2012 novel Indian Horse will be coming to this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival.

 

B.C. film is looking real good in first VIFF 2017 programming announcement

 

Elevation Pictures announced today (August 23) that the Ontario-shot film, directed by Stephen Campanelli (Momentum), will have its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

 

With a screenplay by Vancouver screenwriter Dennis Foon (On the Farm) and executive producers Roger Frappier and Clint Eastwood, the story follows the life of Saul Indian Horse, who was taken away from his Ojibwa family. After being placed in a Catholic residential school, he was not allowed to speak his language or denied his Indigenous heritage as he witnesses abuse. He finds escape in hockey, where his talent helps him escape the school, eventually even becoming a professional player. However, he struggles to deal with traumatic experiences of the past that continue to haunt him.

 

Three actors portray the lead character at different stages of his life: Sladen Peltier plays Saul at 6 years old, Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant) at 15 years old, and Ajuawak Kapashesit at 22 years old.

 

The cast also includes residential school survivor Edna Manitowabi as Saul’s grandmother, B.C. actor Evan Adams (Smoke Signals), as well as Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Michael Murphy (X-Men: The Last Stand), and Martin Donovan (Ant-Man).

 

The screening date of the film at VIFF 2017 is yet to be announced.

 

There is more to this article but I only posted the part about Cal.

 

TVLINE | Where is Cal? Is he still in Iceland?

MANSON | He’s doing whatever Khaleesi tells him to do.

 

TVLINE | On that note, you got a lot of fun characters back this season for flashbacks. Were there actors like Michiel Huisman that you wanted to get back, but couldn’t?

MANSON | Yeah, sure. Anybody who wasn’t there was somebody we couldn’t get back. [Laughs] But listen, you can’t get everybody. Particularly some of the male supporting cast who were love interests to, for instance, Sarah or Helena. At the end of the day, when we were boiling it down with Tatiana [Maslany], it was like, these girls’ story does not need to be supported by a male romantic interest. The tightening and the closing down and the finishing of these women, it’s about a sisterhood, motherhood and family. For instance, after everything they’ve been through, do you think Helena really needs a boyfriend? No, she needs her sisters. What’s more important? I think we focused it quite thoughtfully that way.

 

THE FAN CARPET – From the director of The Forgotten Joseph Ruben, comes the powerful and gripping action-packed drama, THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT. Featuring an all-star cast including Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List), Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Penny Dreadful), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones, The Age of Adaline) and Hera Hilmar (Anna Karenina, Davinci’s Demons) THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT will be released on Digital Download from 24 July and DVD and Blu-ray from 7 August.

 

THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT tells the wartime story of a strong-willed woman Lillie (Hera Hilmar) who leaves the United States after meeting Jude (Josh Hartnett) an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the exotic Ottoman Empire. There, she finds her loyalty tested to both Jude and the mission’s sagacious founder (Ben Kingsley) when she falls in love with Ismail (Michiel Huisman), a Lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Set among the backdrop of World War 1 and tied together with epic battles and mind-blowing fight sequences, Lillie must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.

 

What was it like playing a character in this setting, and what were some challenges for your character (Ismail)?

 

Yes, there were definitely challenges when it came to portraying Ismail. First off, I had to learn a little bit of Turkish, so that itself was a major challenge. It takes place right before the First World War in Turkey, a time I knew little about when I first began working on this project. It is essentially a love drama set against the backdrop of a world that is slowly falling apart. Despite the horrors encircling the region, which I’ve only later come to fully understand, the film is really a romantic drama, and that was always the driving force of the way I would tell Ismail’s story.

FATHERLY – Michiel Huisman didn’t know what to expect when he traveled to the sprawling Bidi Bidi Refugee Camp in Northern Uganda. Swollen by refugees fleeing the conflict in South Sudan, the world’s largest refugee camp sits in a politically unstable region that endured decades of damages inflicted by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army, civil wars, and skirmishes over resources before conflict broke out north of the nearby. There’s only so much a person can do to prepare to visit a place like that so Huisman, famous for his role as Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones and acting as an ambassador for Save the Children, got ready to do the one thing he knew he could: Take it all in. He knew he’d have to describe the trip to both his daughter and to others, maybe even people in a position to help. He packed a camera.

 

When he speaks about what he saw, he does so tentatively. Huisman is aware of his privileged status as a witness and of his own ignorance. There is, after all, a massive difference between witnessing, understanding, and experiencing. Less strident Hollywood activist than traveler, Huisman sticks to descriptions and dwells on the humanity of the people he met. He’s respectful. He talks about the refugees as people, never casting them as hapless victims or describing their experiences as merely the symptoms of a broader problem. For a man who, thanks to his good looks, inevitably plays the most commanding guy in the room, Huisman sounds small. And that’s a compliment.

 

His manner of speaking seems indicative of both how he thinks of himself as a man and a father–just a guy trying to help–and of the magnitude of the mission he’s assigned himself. Through Save the Children, he’s determined to advocate for kids less comfortable than his own. Fatherly spoke to Huisman about his what he saw, what he brought home, and how he talks to his daughter about the world.

The Game of Thrones favorite has been tapped to star in the streaming giant’s The Haunting of Hill House reboot.

 

Ordered straight to series, the 10-episode drama is a modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson’s classic 1959 novel. The story centers on four people living in an 80-year-old mansion.

Mike Flanagan (Absentia, Oculus) will write, direct and executive produce the Paramount Television drama alongside producing partner Trevor Macy. Amblin TV’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will also exec produce.

 

The Haunting of Hill House was adapted twice for the big screen: in 1963, and in 1999 as The Haunting with Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Owen Wilson and Lili Taylor. The latter grossed more than $177 million at the box office.

 

Huisman has become quite the in-demand leading man since his breakout role as Daario Naharis on HBO’s Game of Thrones. His credits include Orphan Black, Nashville, Treme as well feature The Age of Adaline. He’s repped by UTA, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and attorney Frank Stewart.
