Following the recent news that Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario were added to the film adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1962 novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, it’s now been revealed that Crispin Glover has joined the movie’s ranks in a key role.
According to THR, Glover will portray Uncle Julian Blackwood in the gothic film. Suffering from gangrene and unable to move without the aid of a wheelchair, Uncle Julian mourns the suspicious demises of his wife and brother.
Glover joins a cast that includes Farmiga and Daddario as “agoraphobic sisters” and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War) as a cousin of the family who stirs things up upon his arrival at the Blackwood home.

Buried beneath yesterday’s confirmation that Sebastian Stan would reprise his role as The Winter Soldier for Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War was news that Stan had agreed terms to join We Have Always Lived in the Castle, the creepy supernatural thriller hailing from director Stacie Passon.
Based loosely on Shirley Jackson’s 1962 novel, it is the arrival of the siblings’ scheming cousin (Stan) that threatens the security of their family fortune, with the early teaser teeing up a domestic thriller peppered with supernatural elements:
“We Have Always Lived in the Castle follows an isolated family, which has already lost four members to poisoning, that uses rituals and talismans to keep itself away from hostile townspeople. Into this scenario arrives a distant cousin, »

While Shirley Jackson is perhaps best remembered for leaving an eerie imprint on the literary world with The Haunting of Hill House, she also sent shudders down readers’ spines with 1962’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle. The last book written by Jackson is now finding new life in a big screen adaptation that recently added Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario to its cast.
The news of Farmiga and Daddario’s casting comes from Borys Kit at THR, who reveals that the actresses have joined Sebastian Stan (Captain America: Civil War) in the movie. According to THR, the duo will play “agoraphobic sisters who become divided by the cousin’s arrival.”
Neither actress is a stranger to the horror genre. Farmiga recently played the lead role in The Final Girls, appeared in multiple seasons of American Horror Story, and plays a key role in Ti West’s upcoming Western, »

River of No Return: Sobel Brings Scent of Southern Gothic to the Mid-West with Stellar Debut
Family reunions have tremendous potential as battlefields for dysfunctional reparations, and provide easy arenas for comedy or drama to flourish. Director Matt Sobel draws upon the decidedly uncomfortable sort with his debut, Take Me to the River, an astute collision of adolescent anguish, coming-out suppression, and rural redneck nightmare all rolled into a flammable powder keg that leaks incendiary fumes but never builds to explosive relief. Age old juxtapositions, such as the sinful worldliness of Californians vs. corn-fed Midwestern white values, are enhanced by the dramatic charge of queer tensions Sobel compellingly conjures. Sure to make you squirm thanks to a reservoir of debauched sexuality lurking underneath the thin veneer of respectable propriety, Sobel culls a handful of startlingly realistic performances from a fine cast.
