Zachary Quinto & Ashleigh Cummings Cast In AMC Horror Series “NOS4A2” Based On The Joe Hill Novel

AMC has cast Emmy-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “American Horror Story”) and rising star Ashleigh Cummings (“The Goldfinch,” “Hounds of Love”) in the lead roles for its new supernatural horror series “NOS4A2” (working title). The network also announced Emmy-nominated director Kari Skogland (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Sons of Liberty”) will direct the first two episodes of the series based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name. Production began this week in Rhode Island. 

The 10 one-hour episodes are slated to premiere in 2019.

Quinto will play Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England (Cummings) discovers she has a dangerous gift.

Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit.  She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

Executive producer and showrunner, Jami O’Brien said, “As a huge fan of Joe Hill’s rich, imaginative, and exciting book, I am over the moon to be working with such a phenomenal cast and creative team on this special project.”

“NOS4A2” is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. The series is executive produced by Joe Hill, Jami O’Brien (“Fear The Walking Dead,” “Hell On Wheels”), who created the show for television and will serve as showrunner, and Lauren Corrao, Co-President of Tornante Television. The cast also includes the previously announced Olafur Darri Olafsson (“Lady Dynamite”) as Bing Partridge, Virginia Kull (“The Looming Tower”) as Linda McQueen, Ebon Moss-Bachrach (“The Punisher”) as Chris McQueen and Jahkara Smith (aka Sailor J) as Maggie Leigh.

Today i09.com posted an excerpt of the highly anticipated book on their site and Joe Hill set up the snippet with the following info:

“Where are we? At a little cottage in the woods . . . a long, long way off from anyone who might hear you yelling for help. How did we get here? We came across the Shorter Way Bridge, a bridge that doesn’t really exist in our world, but never mind that. It isn’t important to what you’re about to read.

Here’s what is important: Our hero is Victoria McQueen, a seventeen-year-old kid who has come looking for trouble and is about to find some. Vic believes she has found the hideout of a man who has a car that runs on human souls instead of gasoline. This man-known to her only as the Wraith-is impossibly old and has destroyed an unfathomable number of lives. If Vic doesn’t want to be the next person he grinds up and spits out, she’s going to have to watch her step . . .”

Secondly, here is the brand new video to promote NOS4A2:

Finally, Joe is hitting the road in the U.S. and U.K. to meet and greet fans and chat about the book. You can check out his tour schedule HERE.
