Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard will star in the horror film The Turning for Amblin.
Wolfhard is having a pretty good time of late, his Netflix series Stranger Things is one of the most popular and talked about shows going and he also starred in this years’ monstrously successful adaptation of Stephen King’s It.
Wolfhard is quickly becoming the go to child actor for on screen horror fiction and he has now picked up another role in the genre, this time starring in Amblin’s The Turning, which is to be an adaptation of the classic Henry James novella, The Turn of the Screw.
Wolfhard will star in the film alongside Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049 and The Martian).
The story of the film will revolve around a young woman (played by Davis) who becomes the nanny of two orphans (one played by Wolfhard) who live in a haunted mansion in the country.
The Turning will be directed by Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways) and produced by Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton) and Roy Lee (It). Production is to start in early 2018.
