Mike Flanagan, the creator of The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and director of Doctor Sleep, is set to adapt Christopher Pike‘s 1994 novel The Midnight Club, and now, the filmmaker has announced the cast for the upcoming Netflix series.
Taking to Twitter, Flanagan confirmed the cast for the series which includes A Nightmare on Elm Street legend Heather Langenkamp as well as several of his former collaborators from The Haunting of Hill House.
“Portraying the titular club of terminally ill young adults is an amazing group of young actors. The Midnight Club is made up of Adia, Igby Rigney, Ruth Codd, William Chris Sumpter, Aya Furukawa, Annarah Shephard and Sauriyan Sapkota.”
“I’m thrilled to welcome back some familiar faces as Zach Gilford, Samantha Sloyan, and Matt Biedel join the cast in supporting roles. (Some other familiar faces from previous Intrepid projects to pop up as guest stars along the way.)”
“Anchoring the show as the enigmatic doctor who runs this hospice for young adults, I’m honored to welcome Heather Langenkamp. To horror fans like myself, Heather is royalty, and I am so excited to work with her.”
The Midnight Club takes place at Rotterdam Home, a hospice for terminally ill teenagers and follows a group of patients who begin to gather together at midnight to share scary stories. However, they eventually make a pact that whichever of them dies first will contact the others from beyond the grave.
Mike Flanagan will serve as co-creator on The Midnight Club series alongside Leah Fong (Once Upon a Time). Both Flanagan and Fong will also executive produce, along with Julia Bicknell via Intrepid Pictures along with Intrepid’s Trevor Macy. The series will be written by Elan Gale, James Flanagan, and Chinaka Hodge.
