‘Stranger Things’ fans watched as actor Finn Wolfhard went head to head with Pennywise earlier this year in the new adaption of Stephen King’s It.
Now, the talented young actor has signed on for upcoming horror film The Turning from director Floria Sigismondi. In the film, inspired by the novella “The Turning of the Screw”, the 14-year-old will play the role of an orphan. Production is expected to begin early next year. But don’t worry, we’ll see Wolfhard again in the next season of ‘Strangers Things’.
In the 1898 story that was originally printed in Collier’s Weekly, a young governess has been hired to look after and teach a young brother and sister who live in a sprawling gothic mansion. Soon the governess begins to see two spirits who she believes are after the children. By the end of the tale readers and critics were left wondering if the spirits existed or if it was all in the governess’ head.
Director Sigismondi has quite an impressive resume with series like ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘Daredevil’, and many music videos from artist such as David Bowie, Pink, The White Stripes, and Marilyn Manson.
