The movie — an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1962 story of the same name — centers on an isolated family, The Blackwoods, who use rituals and talismans to ward off hostile townspeople. The clan has already lost four members to poisoning when a distant cousin (Stan) arrives to maliciously secure the Blackwood fortune, at which point family secrets are unearthed.
Glover will play Uncle Julian Blackwood, a man who due to extreme gangrene is confined to a wheelchair and morbidly obsesses over his wife and brother’s mysterious deaths.
Stacie Passon will direct the adaptation of Jackson’s macabre tale, which she co-wrote with Mark Kruger. Michael Douglas is producing, along with Jared Goldman, Robert Mitas and Robert Halmi, Jr.
Glover currently is in production on Starz‘s highly anticipated Neil Gaiman adaptation American Gods. He is repped by APA.
