Sir. Harrigan’s phone photos provide an early look at the Netflix Stephen King adaptation

A film based on the Stephen King story Sir. Harrigan’s phone is set to be released via the Netflix streaming service October 5th, and while we’re still waiting to see a trailer for the film, Netflix has just released a batch of images to give us an early look at what Sir. Harrigan’s phone have in store for us. The mix of stills from the film and behind-the-scenes footage can be seen at the bottom of this article.

The story Sir. Harrigan’s phone was in the King’s Book If it bleedswhich you can buy from THIS LINK. Written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The little things), the film will focus on

Craig, a young boy living in a small town, who befriends an older, reclusive billionaire Mr. Harrigan. The two bond over books and an iPhone, but when the man dies, the boy discovers that not all is dead and finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone that was buried with him.

Jaeden Martell (That), Donald Sutherland (Salem’s Lot 2004), Joe Tippett (Jumping off Eastown), Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Into the Darkness: New Year, New You), Cyrus Arnold (8-bit Christmas), Bennett Saltzman (A very Harold & Kumar Christmas), Alexa Niziak (Paranormal Activity: Next of kin), Conor William Wright (Search team), and newcomer Colin O’Brien star.

Martell plays Craig, with Sutherland as Mr. Harrigan, Tippett as Craig’s father, “left to raise his only son alone after the death of his wife”, and Howell-Baptiste as Craig’s caring and concerned teacher, Ms. Hart.

O’Brien takes on the role of “Young Craig,” while Arnold plays Craig’s antagonist, Kenny Yankovich. O’Brien has worked on two previous projects, the Halle Berry/Netflix film The mother ship and Charlie and the chocolate Factory prequel Wonka (in which he plays a younger version of Timothée Chalamet’s Willy Wonka), but neither has been released yet.

Blumhouse and Ryan Murphy Productions team up to bring us Sir. Harrigan’s phone. Jason Blum, Ryan Murphy and Carla Hacken are producing the film, while Blumhouse Television’s Chris McCumber and Jeremy Gold serve as executive producers.

In an interview, Hancock said Sir. Harrigan’s Phone will appeal to viewers who enjoyed the less horrific King adaptations The Shawshank Redemption, Stand by meand The green Mile, but that it will also offer some “good scares”. “My take on it was, it’s in fashion like the Brothers Grimm. It’s kind of a cautionary tale.”

Sounds interesting to me. I haven’t read the story yet, but I’ll definitely be watching Sir. Harrigan’s phone in October. Will you? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
