There is certainly no shortage of Stephen King film and tv series adaptation especially after the success of last year’s “It” as a new psychological-horror drama series “Castle Rock” gets a creepy new trailer today.
Set in the fictional Maine town of Castle Rock, the latest trailer features plenty of King references, including Cujo and IT among others.
It doesn’t hurt that the series features Bill Skarsgård, who had a big year in 2017 as Pennywise from the blockbuster phenomenon “IT”, this time playing “The Kid”, a mysterious, feral inmate discovered in a cage deep beneath Shawshank State Penitentiary.
From mega producer J. J. Abrams, in the series also stars André Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy.
Here is the show’s synopsis:
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 The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
Hulu has slotted the premiere of “Castle Rock” to July 25.
