Hulu’s upcoming original series Castle Rock has just signed up Oscar winner Sissy Spacek (Coal Miner’s Daughter) and Jane Levy (Don’t Breath, Evil Dead) for starring roles. The psychological horror series is set in Stephen King’s world and “combines 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. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.”
Per Hulu, Spacek will play Ruth Deaver, “estranged adoptive mother of Henry (Andre Holland), a retired professor whose fading memories may hold a key to Castle Rock’s unsettling past.” Levy has been cast as Jackie, “the death-obsessed, self-appointed historian of Castle Rock.”
J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson, Liz Glotzer, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason are executive producing. Castle Rock is a Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television production, and season one is set to consist of 10 episodes.
Sissy Spacek’s recent credits include Bloodline, Deadfall, The Help, Gimme Shelter, Big Love, Get Low, and Four Christmases. Levy’s recently been featured in Twin Peaks, I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, There’s…Johnny!, Monster Trucks, and Frank and Cindy.
