The House With a Clock in Its Walls
 
We first heard that director Eli Roth and actor Jack Black would be collaborating on The House With a Clock in its Walls in 2017. The film is based on a gothic horror book written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey.
 
Now two trailers have been released and we've learned much more about the family adventure. Here’s a recap of everything we know.
 
What’s it about?
 
This fantasy/horror/mystery hybrid follows an orphan who helps his uncle track down a clock capable of ending the world. The film is based on the children’s novel of the same name by John Bellairs. Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis for the film: 
 
"The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead."
 
Who is starring?
 
Actor, comedian and all-around rock star Jack Black, alongside two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett. Owen Vaccaro, who you may have seen in the comedy Daddy’s Home and/or its sequel, Daddy’s Home 2, plays our young adventurer.
 
Who else is in the film?
 
Kyle MacLachlan (hot off starring in Twin Peaks: The Return) and veteran character actress Colleen Camp will bring some genre legacy to the supporting cast. Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, and Sunny Suljic will also star.
 
What else has Eli Roth directed?
 
American horror guru Eli Roth is directing the script adapted by Eric Kripke. Roth has become a permanent fixture in the genre since bursting on the film festival scene with Cabin Fever in 2002. His reputation grew by creating the Hostel series and, with The Green Inferno, a modern take on the cannibal films of yesteryear. More recently, he helmed a new version of the 1970s vigilante film Death Wish, starring Bruce Willis.
 
When does it come out?
 
September 21, 2018.
