Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan has been cast in Eli Roth’s next horror endeavour The House with a Clock in Its Walls, based on the novel written by John Bellairs. MacLachlan joins the already impressive cast that features Cate Blanchett and Jack Black.
The script has been written by Eric Kipe (Boogeyman, Supernatural) and follows an orphaned child who discovers hidden passageways in his uncle’s house. MacLachlan will play Isaac Izard, the mysterious original owner of the house.
After seeing the Twin Peaks revival, we certainly know that MacLachlan can do creepy, sinister and mysterious with ease, so we look forward to seeing him in this fantastical horror film with a sci-fi edge.
The House with a Clock in its Walls additionally stars Owen Vaccaro (Fun Mom Dinner, Daddy’s Home 2) as the orphaned young boy. There is no release date as of yet, so keep your eyes peeled.
