Netflix ha annunciato l’avvio della produzione di una serie tv basata sul romanzo “The Haunting of Hill House“, il capolavoro di Shirley Jackson, che già era stato protagonista di due pellicole hollywoodiane, il bellissimo “Gli invasati” (The Haunting, 1963) di Robert Wise e il più recente ma meno riuscito “Haunting. Presenz” (The Haunting, 1999), con Liam Neeson. La serie sarà composta da una prima stagione di dieci episodi, sotto la direzione di Mike Flanagan, già noto al pubblico dell’horror per film quali “Hush,” “Oculus,” e “Ouija”.
La seconda produzione dedicata a Shirley Jackson è il film “We Have Always Lived in the Castle“, la cui uscita nelle sale cinematografiche è prevista per quest’anno, per la regia di Stacie Passon.
Netflix will develop a series based on the Shirley Jackson horror novel “The Haunting of Hill House”. The series is described as a modern re-imagining of Jackson’s novel. The novel was previously adapted into a feature film in both 1963 and 1999.

During this year, another Jackson’s work will be adapted into a mystery thriller movie, “We Have Always Lived in the Castle“, directed by Stacie Passon.
