Famous director and screenwriter Mike Flanagan (‘The Curse of the Hill Residence’, ‘Midnight Mass’) today (9th) revealed the first wave of actors who will star in the adaptation of ‘The Fall of Usher’s House’ (The Fall of the House of Usher), based on several works by legendary American novelist Edgar Allan Poe.
Featured in the production, collaborator is dating Carla Gugino, as well as Mark Hamill, Frank Langella, Carl Lumbly and Mary McDonnell.
Details of their roles have not been disclosed.
In an interview with The Boo Crew Podcast, Flanagan revealed that the series will be extremely bloody.
“A lot of my productions are slow paced, but ‘The Fall of House Usher’ will be like a blast. It’s going to be an aggressive, overblown, violent, crazy series unlike anything I’ve ever done. We want gallons of blood flowing across the screen from the start. This is the new goal. This is our chance to create something crazy. The entire Edgar Allan Poe catalog is in the public domain. We can choose what we want and create our own vision. It will be an intense journey after five very moving years. It will be a lot of fun. “
He adds: “We will start filming in January. They will announce the casting shortly. The cast is amazing.
While details of the narrative have not been revealed, the title story was originally published in 1893 and analyzes themes such as insanity, family, isolation, and metaphysical identities. The story follows an anonymous narrator who visits House Usher on a “dark, silent and brooding day.” The house, owned by a childhood friend named Roderick Usher, is mysterious and creepy – and the narrator realizes that the house has absorbed unspeakable evil and a sickening atmosphere from all around it.
Flanagan joins as executive producer alongside Trevor Macy, Emmy Grinwis and Michael Fimognari. He also directs four episodes of the series, while Fimognari is responsible for the other four.
The project is the sixth in the agreement between Flanagan and Netflix, preceded by “Midnight Mass”, the famous “The Curse of Hill Residence” and “The Curse of Bly Mansion”, the thriller “Dangerous Game” and the upcoming “The Midnight “. Club’.
The release of “The Downfall of the House of Usher” is not yet scheduled.
