Mike Flanagan, the man behind the hit Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor, has a new horror project in the works, Deadline reports. And this time, it's set in space.
Flanagan will direct an adaptation of the sci-fi horror novel The Season of Passage by Christopher Pike. Although details about the movie are being kept under wraps, the book follows celebrity Dr. Lauren Wagner who was involved in a manned expedition to Mars. But while the world loves and respects her, she's haunted by the mystery of the missing group who went before her – are they dead, or did they meet another fate?
Flanagan is currently adapting another of Pike's novels for Netflix – The Midnight Club, which is currently filming, will be a TV series based on the book of the same name. It follows a group of terminally ill teenagers who meet every night to tell each other scary stories. The cast includes A Nightmare on Elm Street's Heather Langenkamp.
Netflix's designated king of horror has certainly been busy – in December 2020, the writer-director wrapped production on another series for the streamer, Midnight Mass, about an isolated island town that begins to experience strange occurrences after the arrival of a mysterious preacher.
Although much of his recent work has been on the small screen, Flanagan's big-screen directing credits include Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining, and Gerald's Game, a psychological horror that's also based on a Stephen King novel.
