Kyle MacLachlan has picked up his next gig now that Showtime’s Twin Peaks has come to an end. Deadline Hollywood reports that MacLachlan has joined Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in the cast of Amblin's new film The House With a Clock in Its Walls, which is based on the 1973 John Bellairs horror book of the same neame illustrated by Edward Gorey. Expert Horror director Eli Roth is helming.
Eric Kripke (Supernatural) wrote the script based on the novel. The movie is about a recently orphaned 10-year-old boy who discovers a world of hidden passageways, magic and danger in his uncle’s old house. MacLachlan will play Isaac Izard, the sinister original owner of the house.
MacLachlan, recently reprised his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper in David Lynch’s recent Twin Peaks revival. The role in this film seems like a good fit for him. What do you think? Have you read the book that this film is based on? Do you think Eli Roth will do it justice?
