Mr. Harrigan’s Phone will be ringing its way onto Netflix on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, and the official trailer has arrived this morning. The film is an adaptation of one of the stories featured in Stephen King‘s recent four-novella collection, If It Bleeds (2020).
The upcoming movie comes from “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy and Blumhouse, with John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) writing and directing.
In Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, “When Craig, a young boy living in a small town (Jaeden Martell) befriends Mr. Harrigan, an older, reclusive billionaire (Donald Sutherland), the two begin to form an unlikely bond over their love of books and reading. But when Mr. Harrigan sadly passes away, Craig discovers that not everything is dead and gone and strangely finds himself able to communicate with his friend from the grave through the iPhone in this supernatural coming-of-age story that shows that certain connections are never lost.”
And as we learned more recently, Kirby Howell-Baptiste (“Barry,” “Killing Eve”) has joined the cast. “Howell-Baptiste will play Craig’s caring and concerned teacher, Ms. Hart.”
