Nancy Drew was always a staple in my bookshelf growing up. As time has gone by, I’ve wondered how she will continue to be relevant for younger generations. Well, Warner Bros. Pictures is here with a brand new film aiming to answer that very question.
NANCY DREW AND THE HIDDEN STAIRCASE is the latest film aiming to bring the well-known literary sleuth to life on the big screen. The film stars Sophia Lillis (IT) as the titular Nancy Drew, Sam Trammell (“True Blood“), and Linda Lavin (Alice).
After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion.
Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding light bulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case!
Nancy Drew has been a #1 female heroine for young girls since the 1930s and has been available in mediums such as novels, TV series, video games, and more! It’s time for the next generation to learn about the wonder that Nancy embodies and we’ll hope NANCY DREW AND THE HIDDEN STAIRCASE does just that.
NANCY DREW AND THE HIDDEN STAIRCASE will break its way into theaters on March 15, 2019.
