As reported in April by HNN’s John Evans, Netflix announced a new series based on Shirley Jackson’s seminal haunted house tale The Haunting of Hill House to be directed by Oculus director Mike Flanagan.
Now comes news from The Hollywood Reporter that Game of Thrones star Michiel Huisman has been cast as the lead character in the Netflix horror series.
Huisman will portray “…Steven Crane, the oldest Crane sibling and a published writer of supernatural books — including a memoir about his family’s time living at Hill House.”
Huisman is well known for his role of Daario Naharis, one of the leaders of the Second Sons and lover of “the Queen of Dragons” Daenerys Targaryen, on Game of Thrones. Huisman is also known to fans of the HBO series Treme as Sonny, a budding musician who struggled with addiction and making the right choices for himself and others.
No information is currently available on when the series will hit Netflix, but it appears that the production is headed in the right direction with the involvement of Flanagan and Huisman.
