One of the young stars from last year’s hit IT will appear in another Stephen King adaptation.
Deadline reports Chosen Jacobs is set to star in the upcoming Hulu series Castle Rock. Fans of the author recognize the title as it’s named after the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his works. The psychological horror series is set in the King multiverse as it intertwines characters and themes from the town of Castle Rock.
The series will set out to combine “the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.” Its ensemble cast includes Melanie Lynskey, André Holland, Jane Levy, Sissy Spacek, Bill Skarsgård, Scott Glenn, Terry O’Quinn and Noel Fisher. Jacobs will play Wendell Deaver, the son of Henry Deaver (Holland). He recently starred as Mike Hanlon in the Andy Muschietti-directed success IT and Castle Rock is set to reunite him with Skarsgård, who portrayed the terrifying Pennywise the clown in the film.
Castle Rock is created by Sam Shaw and comes from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series has no premiere date as of yet.
