The Haunting of Bly Manor

Speaking with Games Radar, Mike Flanagan revealed the new season of The Haunting of Hill House will not only adapt The Turn of the Screw, but several other ghost stories in the Henry James catalog.

I think of Turning of the Screw (sic) as the backbone of this season – the through line that carries us from beginning to end. But we get to go off into The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes, and so many other of these wonderful ghost stories that people haven’t seen adapted before. It’s all wrapped up in what seems to be familiar, but that familiarity goes away really early in the first episode. It says, “We’re off on a whole other road.”

We also have a bit on the Haunting on our own interview with Flanagan here.


The Boys

TV Guide reports Toronto Councillor John Filion has asked The Boys to find a new location for a violent scene initially set to film in Mel Lastman Square considering last year’s very real attack on the city that left ten dead. The scene in question is said to depict “one of the rogue superheroes” attacking a crowd of 450 people while spraying “a considerable amount of fake blood.”
