If you’ve ever been worried about getting lost in a cornfield, or even worse, a field of tall grass, then the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Stephen King and Joe Hill’s In the Tall Grass is sure to make you feel uneasy. The novella was first published in Esquire back in 2012, but the streaming platform acquired the rights last year to finally bring the story to our screens and this trailer release marks our first glimpse at the end result of this effort.
In the story, two siblings hear the cries of a young boy lost within a field of tall grass and venture in to rescue him, only to become ensnared by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them. Cut off from the world and unable to escape the field’s tightening grip, they soon discover that the only thing worse than getting lost is being found.
In the Tall Grass is written and directed by Vincenzo Natali, who has previously helmed Splice, episodes of Hannibal, and even a pair of Westworld installments for HBO. Starring is Harrison Gilbertson, Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Will Buie Jr., Rachel Wilson, and Patrick Wilson, with Steven Hoban, Mark Smith, Jimmy Miller, and M. Riley on board as producers.
The film will hit Netflix on October 4th. As usual, Dead Entertainment will keep you posted with all the latest news and updates, so stay tuned!
