JJ Abrams and Stephen King have come together for a new psychological horrorset in Stephen King’s universe – Castle Rock.
Castle Rock is the name of the Maine town that a number of King’s stories are set. The show will feature a number of characters from those stories as their lives intersect. Melanie Lynskey, Andre Holland, Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy are set to star in the Hulu/Stephen King project.
Lynskey will play Molly Strand, a woman with a rare medical condition who’s barely scraping by as a real estate agent in a town where every third property is the site of someone’s worst nightmare. Holland plays Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in Castle Rock.
Spacek will play Ruth Deaver, Henry’s adopted mother and a retired professor. Jane Levy will play Jackie, a morbid, death-obsessed girl who’s appointed herself the historian of Castle Rock.
