‘Night Books’ Netflix Film Lands Three Lead Actors

A new genre film that draws its inspiration from a horror/fantasy children’s book is heading to Netflix.

Night Books–based on the book of the same name from J.A. White–will star Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Winslow Fegley (Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made) and Lidya Jewett (Feel the Beat), as reported by Deadline. No timetable for the film’s premiere has been announced.

The movie’s storyline follows Alex (Fegley), a boy who is obsessed with frightening stories, who is imprisoned by an evil, young witch (Ritter) in her Manhattan apartment. There he meets another captive (Jewett) and discovers he must tell a new scary story every night in order to stay alive. Talk about pressure!

David Yarovesky–who made his horror bones with 2014’s The Hive and 2019’s superhero horror film Brightburn–will helm the movie. Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis will write the screenplay.

Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert will produce through Ghost House Pictures alongside Mason Novick, Tracy Kopulsky and Michelle Knudsen from MXN Entertainment. Romel Adam will act as executive producer.
