Someone’s on the line for you.
Mr. Harrigan’s Phone–the small-screen adaptation of a Stephen King novella that appeared in 2020’s If It Bleeds–will land on Netflix in a few weeks, and the first official trailer is now here to chill your blood. Check out the video on this page.
The Blumhouse Productions feature–which starts streaming on Netflix Oct. 5–is written and directed by John Lee Hancock and produced by Jason Blum, Ryan Murphy and Carla Hacken.
The film follows a young boy, Craig (Jaeden Martell), who befriends an old, reclusive billionaire, Mr. Harrigan (Donald Sutherland), according to the synopsis. The two form “an unlikely bond over their love of books and reading.”
But, when Mr. Harrigan passes away, Craig discovers “that not everything dead is gone–and finds he can communicate with his friend from the grave through an iPhone that was buried with him.”
The film–which King called “nothing short of brilliant”–also stars Joe Tippett as Craig’s father, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Ms. Hart, Colin O’Brien as a younger Craig and Cyrus Arnold as Kenny Yankovich.
