“Stranger Things” and “IT” alum Finn Wolfhard is set to star opposite Mackenzie Davis in the classic haunted house tale “The Turning” for Amblin Entertainment.
An adaptation of Henry James’ novella “The Turn of the Screw,” which was previously brought to the screen in Jack Clayton’s 1961 film “The Innocents,” the story follows a young woman hired as the governess to two orphans at a large country estate.
She soon becomes convinced that the country mansion they live in is haunted. Wolfhard will play one of the orphans.
Jade Bartlett is penning the most recent draft from Chad & Carey Hayes’ original script. Floria Sigismondi is on board to direct while Scott Bernstein and Roy Lee are producing with filming to begin early 2018.
