Clive Barker's Books of Blood is Headed to Hulu, Cast and Release Window Revealed
The film is based on the classic horror anthology book series.

A movie based on Clive Barker's horror anthology Books of Blood is officially a go at Hulu. We first learned this idea was in development back in January when the genre creator discussed upcoming projects in an interview over on his official website. Among those was a television series based on this anthology book series, but it looks like it will proceed as a movie on the streaming platform instead.
Interestingly, this film comes from the duo behind The Orville (which is fantastic by the way), Brannon Braga and Seth MacFarlane. Both will be executive producing while Braga is making his directorial debut while co-writing a script with Adam Simon based on Barker's original material.
Books of Blood is a six-book series from Clive Barker, with each installment being a collection of stories ranging from horror to fantasy. Many of them take place in typical settings featuring typical people, but strange or terrifying events unfold to bring horror into the mix.
The film comes from Fox 21 Television Studios and MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Productions. Starring is Anna Friel (Marcella), Britt Robertson (For the People), Rafi Gavron (A Star is Born), and Yul Vazquez (Midnight, Texas). Fans can expect the movie to arrive sometime next year in the fall.
