Hemlock Grove, a novel by Brian McGreevy that is hitting stores later this month, is getting adapted for Netflix. Famke Janssen and Bill Skarsgard are set to star for Gaumont International Television. The series will be available for Netflix members to watch instantly, beginning early in 2013.
Eli Roth (Hostel) will direct.
Hemlock Grove starts with the body of a young girl, mangled and murdered in the shadow of the former Godfrey steel mill. Some suspect an escapee from the White Tower, a biotech facility owned by the former steel magnates. Others believe the killer could be Peter, a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, who tells his classmates he's a werewolf. Or it could be Roman (Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), the otherworldly beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.
