From American Horror story creator Ryan Murphy and Blumhouse, Mr. Harrigan’s Phone is set to hit Netflix on October 5th—and the trailer teases a multi-generational friendship that doesn’t end with death…
In Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, which is based on the Stephen King novella of the same name: “When Craig, a young boy living in a small town, befriends Mr. Harrigan, an older, reclusive billionaire, the two begin to form an unlikely bond over their love of books and reading. But when Mr. Harrigan sadly passes away, Craig discovers that not everything is dead and gone and strangely finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone in this supernatural coming-of-age story that shows that certain connections are never lost.”
Donald Sutherland (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) stars as Mr. Harrigan opposite Jaeden Martell (It) as Craig. Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Killing Eve) plays Ms. Hart, Craig’s concerned and caring teacher. The cast also includes Joe Tippett, Cyrus Arnold, Colin O’Brien, Thomas Francis Murphy, and Peggy J. Scott.
Mr. Harrigan’s Phone was written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side). Check out the trailer below!
