A small-screen adaptation of Christopher Pike’s 1994 YA horror novel The Midnight Club is headed to Netflix–and the miniseries just landed five directors to lead the way.
Series creator Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, Doctor Sleep) is writing the show–along with Leah Fong–and is acting as executive producer. And this week he took to Twitter to announce the directorial quintet, as reported by comingsoon.net.
The slate of directors includes Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour (Black Box), Axelle Carolyn (Tales of Halloween), Viet Nguyen (Lucifer), Morgan Beggs (Smallville) and Michael Fimognari (To All the Boys: Always and Forever). Carolyn and Beggs worked with Flanagan before on his The Haunting of Bly Manor.
The Midnight Club, as explained, is set in Rotterdam House, “a hospice for terminally ill teenagers, where a group of patients begin to gather at midnight to share scary stories. The group makes a pact that whichever of them dies first will contact the others from beyond the grave.”
Heather Langenkamp (Nancy Thompson of A Nightmare on Elm Street fame) plays the “enigmatic doctor” who runs the hospice. Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard and Sauriyan Sapkota portray the members of the titular club.
The limited series–which is expected to wrap shooting in late July–will debut on Netflix later this year. No exact release date has yet been announced.
