Stephen King’s ‘Mr. Harrigan’s Phone’ Heading To Netflix

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, yet another horror tale from Stephen King will land on Netflix courtesy of Blumhouse Productions.

MrHarrigan’s Phone–a novella from the horror master’s latest bestselling collection If It Bleeds–will be brought to small-screen life by writer/director John Lee Hancock, as reported by Deadline, with an eye toward a 2022 debut date on Netflix.

The film–which will start production this month–stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell (ItKnives Out). Jason Blum and Ryan Murphy will produce alongside Carla Hacken. The executive producers include Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold and Scott Greenberg.

MrHarrigan’s Phone tells the eerie story of a young boy named Craig (Martell) who befriends Mr. Harrigan, an old, reclusive billionaire (Sutherland). The two form a bond over books and an iPhone but, when the old man passes away, Craig “discovers that not everything dead is gone, and finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone that was buried with him.”
