As we told you yesterday, Ciarán Foy (Citadel, Sinister 2, Eli) is on board to direct some episodes of Netflix‘s “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” and Mike Flanagan took to Twitter last night to announce some of the other directors who will be helming select episodes.
Flanagan tweeted, “I’m really excited to be collaborating with some of my favorite filmmakers on The Haunting of Bly Manor.” In addition to Foy, that list includes:
- Yolanda Ramke & Ben Howling (Cargo)
- Liam Gavin (A Dark Song)
- Axelle Carolyn (Tales of Halloween, “Grim Grinning Ghost”)
“The Haunting of Hill House” stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, Victoria Pedretti and Henry Thomas will all be returning to play new characters in “Bly Manor.”
The cast also includes Catherine Parker (“The Haunting of Hill House”), T’Nia Miller, Rahul Kohli, Amelia Eve, Benjamin Ainsworth and Amelie Smith.
The new season is inspired by Henry James’ psychological gothic horror novella The Turn of the Screw.
“I already think it’s much scarier than season one,” Flanagan recently told Birth.Movies.Death.
