Trevor Macy and Flanagan of Intrepid Pictures, along with Emmy Grinwis and director Fimognari, serve as executive producers. “The Fall of the House of Usher” is expected to be Flanagan’s final Netflix project after his Intrepid Pictures signed a first-look deal with Amazon Studios in December 2022. Flanagan is currently adapting Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower.”

“Predating our deal with Amazon, we acquired the rights to ‘The Dark Tower,’ which if you know anything about me, you know it has been my Holy Grail of a project for most of my life,” Flanagan said at the time. “We actually have those rights carved out of our Amazon deal, which doesn’t mean that they can’t or won’t get behind it at some point — you don’t know. But that’s something we’ve been developing ourselves and are really passionate about finally getting it up on its feet at some point.”

Flanagan previously adapted King’s “Gerald’s Game” and “The Shining” prequel “Doctor Sleep” for the big screen. “The Dark Tower” is set as a limited series.

“The Fall of the House of Usher” premieres October 12 on Netflix. Check out the trailer below.
