Patrick Wilson Cast in Stephen King/Joe Hill Project for Netflix

Patrick Wilson- the actor known by horror fans for his unforgettable roles in films like Hard Candy, Insidious, and The Conjuring– will return to the world of horror in the form of a new project on Netflix. Titled, In The Tall Grass, the movie is based on a novella written by Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill.

Deadline reports that Wilson will star in the film, alongside Laysla De Oliveira (Needle in a Timestack) and Harrison Gilbertson (Picnic at Hanging Rock). The movie will be directed by Vincenzo Natali, who has most recently directed episodes of Westworld, American Gods, and Lost in Space.

King and Hill’s short story originally appeared in Esquire Magazine. The story follows a sister and brother who get lost in the tall grasses of Kansas after searching for a boy they hear call for help. It turns out that the maze-like grasses become inescapable, and they’re harboring something horrible. The streaming service has already released a teaser poster for the project, which gives us a better idea of the kind of “tall grass” they’re talking about:

Netflix plans to release In The Tall Grass worldwide sometime in 2019. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this exciting project as they break!

He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
