Castle Rock Adds Jane Levy and Sissy Spacek

By ComingSoon

June 26, 2017

Hulu has made two additions to the cast of its upcoming Castle Rock. Jane Levy and Sissy Spacek are set to join previously-announced star Andre Holland for the Stephen King anthology series. The Evil Dead star will play Jackie, the death-obsessed, self-appointed historian of Castle Rock, while the Academy Award winner — who previously headlined the King adaptation Carrie — will play Ruth Deaver, the estranged adoptive mother of Holland’s Henry Deaver, a retired professor whose fading memories may hold a key to Castle Rock’s unsettling past.

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: “Cujo,” “The Dark Half,” “IT” and “Needful Things,” as well as novella “The Body” and numerous short stories such as “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explores various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

The Castle Rock series reunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television, which previously collaborated on event series 11.22.63, based on King’s novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.

Castle Rock is based on characters and situations created by Stephen King. Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason developed the project for television and serve as executive producers along with J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer. The series is from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Bill Skarsgård Joins Cast of Hulu’s Castle Rock

By ComingSoon

July 10, 2017

Set to debut as the terrifying clown Pennywise later this year in IT, Bill Skarsgård has signed on for another Stephen King adaptation by joining the cast of the Hulu’s Castle Rock. Though the initial teaser for the King-inspired series does mention Pennywise by name, Skarsgård isn’t set to reprise his role from the film in the series. Instead, he will take on the role of a young man with an unusual legal problem.

It’s worth noting that Moonlight actor Andre Holland was previously cast in the role of Henry, a death row attorney who has a unique history with the town of Castle Rock, so these two will likely be sharing some scenes together. Other cast members in the series include Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy and another Stephen King alum, Sissy Spacek.

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: “Cujo,” “The Dark Half,” “IT” and “Needful Things,” as well as novella “The Body” and numerous short stories such as “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explores various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
