    Stephen King's world is about to take over.

    No, residents shouldn't fret about a rabid dog named Cujo running around, nor will people get possessed by supernatural forces.

    New England Studios will only have the look of King's fictional town -- Castle Rock, Maine -- the setting of many of his horror stories.

    Production crews have already moved in to produce a 10-episode Hulu series this summer called "Castle Rock." It will be a high-profile "psychological-horror series" from well-known executive producer J.J. Abrams and King, according to Hulu.

    The production crews are starting to build sets on site. Filming is expected to begin in August and run until January.

    Some of the filming will also take place in Orange -- a small town 45 minutes west of Leominster.

    "It's a really exciting and prestigious project," said David Hartman, director of the Massachusetts Production Coalition. "Landing a TV series for the state is a major win, and an indication of how far the industry has come here."

    Numerous movies have been produced in the Bay State in the last decade -- "The Town," "Black Mass," "Manchester By The Sea," "American Hustle" and more -- but TV series have stayed away.

    Hartman estimated that it's been more than 25 years since a scripted TV series was produced in Massachusetts.

    "It's been quite a while," he said. "But now we have the right infrastructure, crew and talent base, and a stable incentive program to land this big one.

    "Once we have one series, it encourages others to look at bringing a series here," he added.

    Unlike a movie that will film for only two or three months in an area, officials hope the series will come back to the region for future seasons.

    "A good series can keep us busy for quite a while," Hartman said.

    "More workers will be here for longer," he added. "It helps increase spending, and supporting local businesses."

    Some of the jobs these series bring to the area include electricians, carpenters and accountants. Hotels typically fill up with the talent and production crews.

    The series will be based on the characters and stories created by King.

    "A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, 'Castle Rock' combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King's best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland," reads a description from Hulu.

    " 'Castle Rock' is an original suspense/thriller -- a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories," Hulu adds.

    Sets are getting built in Devens as the Legislature takes a look at the decade-old film tax credit. Last month, the state Senate adopted a proposal to impose more stringent requirements for studios to qualify. The amendment would save the state about $15 million annually from the $80 million it now extends in credits.

    The Senate incorporated the proposal into its budget bill, which will be reconciled with the House budget in a conference committee before being sent to the governor's desk. Gov. Charlie Baker in his first budget proposed phasing out the film tax credit.

    Hartman said he hopes the tax credit does not get altered. It's been a "crucial" piece in landing films over the last decade, he said.

    "We've been working very hard to advocate for our industry, and make sure there are no changes to impact production," Hartman said.

    Film companies can become eligible for the tax credit now if half their production expenditures are made in Massachusetts or if half of their principal photography days are spent in the state, under the law. The proposal would require those companies to either spend 75 percent or shoot 75 percent in Massachusetts to qualify.

    New England Studios in Devens was established in 2013. The studio has served as the location for special effects done in "Central Intelligence" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart, as well as a small romantic comedy "Tumbledown," in which Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall shot a scene in a Shirley diner.

    Hulu’s mysterious Stephen King/J.J. Abrams series Castle Rock is starting to cast its town residents. EW has confirmed that Sissy Spacek, who played the iconic title character in the film adaptation of King’s Carrie, and Jane Levy (Don’t Breathe) will both be joining the show. The actresses join previously cast member Andre Holland (Moonlight) in the 10-episode psychological horror series set in the titular town and King’s multiverse.

    Spacek plays “Ruth Deaver, estranged adoptive mother of Henry (Holland), a retired professor whose fading memories may hold a key to Castle Rock’s unsettling past.”

    Meanwhile, Levy is “Jackie, the death-obsessed, self-appointed historian of Castle Rock.”

    The series is being developed by Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason (Abrams will executive produce with the duo) and will begin shooting this year.

    Melanie Lynskey (ROSE RED) will play Molly Strand, a woman with a rare medical condition who’s barely scraping by as a real estate agent in a town where every third property is the site of someone’s worst nightmare. Holland plays Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in Castle Rock. In addition to Holland, Lynskey joins previously cast Sissy Spacek and Jane Levy.

    Pennywise in Castle Rock?

    Aspiring actors or hardcore Stephen King fans could have a chance to be an extra in the new television series based off King's world of horror.

    "Castle Rock," the 10-episode thriller series to play on Hulu, is searching for people in Massachusetts to be extras.

    Slate Casting is holding an open call on July 18, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Orange Town Hall Auditorium, according to its website.

    At open call, people will have their photo taken to be considered as an extra for the show. Those who cannot make open call can fill out a submission form online.

    Castle Rock is the creepy, but fictional, Maine town first mentioned in King's 1979 novel "The Dead Zone." It has also appeared in in Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and other King works.

    The series is being filmed in Orange as well as at New England Studios in Devens.

    Hulu has called the show a "first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories."

    Castle Rock is produced by J.J. Abrams with his company Bad Robot Productions, Warner Bros. Television and executive producers/writers Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, Hulu said.

    Abrams is known for co-writing, producing and directing the blockbuster hit film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    It would be so cool to be an extra on that!

    Unfortunately, there's a large pond I'd have to swim, but anyone going, let us know how it was! (I don't mean spoilers, I just mean if you got through, how it was, etc.)

    Get your creep on: An old Victorian house on Neck Road that last sold on Halloween 2011 will be featured in a new television series based on Stephen King novels.

    Film crews arrived early Tuesday morning for three days of filming in and around the circa-1900 big white house at 170 Neck Road.

    The 10-episode Hulu series, called “Castle Rock” after a fictional Maine town depicted in several of King’s books, will weave characters and themes from his books and novellas into episodes of psycho-horror.

    Steve Arnold, production designer, said the house was chosen because it has a formal symmetrical facade indicative of the mid nineteenth century Second Empire style.

    “Its symmetry and simplicity is a counterpoint to some of the other houses we are using in the series which are much more eccentric,” he said in an email. “We were particularly interested in the house because of how it is situated being set back from the road with an expansive front yard. This works well for a particular shot that we need.”

    Neck Road from Centerbridge Road to Packard Street was closed Tuesday to all but residents. According to a July 24 letter sent to residents, filming will take place from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Monday, Aug. 7. Some driving scenes will be filmed Wednesday morning and Monday evening on Packard. The letter from location manager Kevin Foster says “there will be no car chases, explosions or gunfire. Just dead bodies.”

    Jean Lidstone, who lives on Neck Road, said she noticed a lot of big trucks carrying props up and down the street in the early morning Tuesday. Ms. Lidstone said her house was also considered for filming.

    “The location scout dropped off a letter saying our house was being considered for the show, but no one called back to photo the inside and outside,” Ms. Lidstone said. “The letter said if chosen, we would receive financial compensation based on the scope and extent of the filming.”

    According to the town assessor’s office, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom Victorian at 170 Neck Road is owned by Hollis Petri and Heidi Horton. It sold on Oct. 31, 2011, for $280,000.

    The fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, first appeared in King’s 1979 novel “The Dead Zone” and is referenced in “Cujo,” “The Stand,” “It,” “Creepshow,” and “The Shawshank Redemption.” The town reappeared in his 2013 novel “Doctor Sleep” and 2014′s “Revival.”

    The streaming series will star Sissy Spacek (reunited with King’s work after her famous role as “Carrie” in the 1976 blockbuster) and Andre Holland, who was in the Oscar-winning movie “Moonlight.” Holland will star in the series as Henry, a death row lawyer with a complicated history in Castle Rock. Spacek portrays his estranged adoptive mother, a retired professor.

    Scenes for the series, the first scripted television series filmed in Massachusetts since the 1980s-era “Spenser: For Hire,” have also been shot in Hudson and Orange, and at a soundstage at Devens. The series is produced by J.J. Abrams and his company, Bad Robot Productions.

    Unlike the May filming of scenes for the upcoming feature film “Daddy’s Home 2” in nearby Clinton, there were no onlookers – or King fans – at either end of Neck Road on Tuesday. The neighborhood was quiet, with one police officer on duty to keep the curious away.

    Town Hall will not be closed on Aug. 8, but you can expect delays when production crews film scenes in downtown Orange and at the First Universalist Church for “Castle Rock,” an upcoming series inspired by the works of horror writer Stephen King.

    Joseph Stargensky, a freelance location manager for Hulu, the subscription video-on-demand service producing “Castle Rock,” said traffic will be detoured around the center of town for the early part of the day, but he did not see a reason to close Town Hall. He said the main intersection will close from 5:30 a.m. to noon so filming can last from 7 a.m. until noon. Filming, he said, will move to the church on North Main Street in the afternoon.

    Downtown businesses will remain open to pedestrian traffic during filming.

    Stargensky said he and other location managers are working with 50 businesses in Orange to ensure they are accommodated. Some businesses have already been dressed up to appear as though they are in Castle Rock, a fictional town in King’s home state of Maine.

    “They’re all on board,” Stargensky said at Tuesday’s Selectboard meeting in Town Hall. “They’ve been great.”

    Orange Financial Director Gabriele Voelker had some concerns about how Town Hall’s eight employees would get to work on Aug. 8. Stargensky and location manager Alex Berard said an alternate parking lot can be found for them and shuttles can bring them to Town Hall. He also said the production would pay for a catered lunch so employees don’t have to leave the building.

    “This is what we do. We’re solution-oriented,” Stargensky said. “We’ll find a way to get you to work.”

    He also said drone footage will at some point be shot for the series. Filming, which Stargensky said started on July 31, is also being done at New England Studios in Devens.

    Stargensky also handed over two checks — one for employee overtime accrued from a July 18 open casting call that drew nearly 1,700 people to Town Hall, and another for the filming slated for Aug. 8. Stargensky and Voelker declined to disclose how much the checks were for.

    In other “Castle Rock” news, the three Selectmen said they have no issue with town employees working as background actors in the series if selected, though it would have to be on the employees’ own time.

    “Castle Rock” is being produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot, the production company of J.J. Abrams, creator of “Lost,” “Felicity” and the films “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Mission: Impossible.”

    If you were walking through downtown Orange on Tuesday, or should we say “Castle Rock,” you may have wondered what happened to local businesses like Quik Cutz hair styling salon or Sunjays bubble tea shop. Don’t worry — they’re not going anywhere. They merely had a temporary change of identity.

    The town was ready for its close-up as the police cordoned off downtown for periods of the day so a film crew could shoot scenes for “Castle Rock,” an upcoming online series inspired by the works of famed horror writer Stephen King. Most pedestrian traffic was still allowed.

    Orange resident Jamel Kovacevic, who lives on Dexter Street, stopped by to see the action.

    “I’ve been trying to get them to use my swamp — I’ve got a nice little swamp down at my house,” he said. “This is cool. I think it’s good for the town.”

    This series, slated for the Hulu subscription video-on-demand service, is an original suspense/thriller.

    The main intersection was littered with equipment and personnel, from make-up artists and construction crew members to stunt drivers and camera operators, some of whom stood on ladders. The crew worked throughout the morning, stopping shortly after 1 p.m. Filming resumed after lunch and was scheduled for the First Universalist Church on North Main Street in the afternoon.

    Traffic was detoured while the film crew was working.

    Castle Rock is a fictional town in Maine (King’s home state) that the writer has used in much of his work. According to Hulu, the town has been featured in “Cujo,” “The Dark Half,” and “Needful Things,” as well as the novella “The Body” and other short stories.

    At one point, a crew member was seen combing and styling the hair of actress Melanie Lynskey, who sat in the driver’s seat of a run-down Volvo waiting near the intersection on South Main Street. Lynskey, perhaps most known for playing Rose on the sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” is one of the production’s big names. André Holland, from the Academy Award-winning film “Moonlight,” has been cast to play the lead role, and Sissy Spacek, famous for her role as the title character in the 1976 film adaptation of Stephen King’s “Carrie,” and Jane Levy, who starred in the ABC comedy series “Suburgatory,” have also signed on.

    Publicists for Hulu asked that no photographs or video footage be shot of the actors or the altered storefronts.

    Equipped with headsets and walkie-talkies, crew members meticulously engineered every movement and camera angle for the scenes. This consisted mostly of vehicles driving through the intersection. Scenes were repeated multiple times. The business facades in the background of the shots had been artistically transferred to resemble those of a mysterious defunct mill town from yesteryear.

    “Walk with the strollers,” one man instructed, prompting two women to walk up South Main Street with baby strollers while a car cruised past them. The parking lot across the street from Trail Head Outfitters & General Store was filled with background actors waiting to be tagged in. A July 18 open casting call drew nearly 1,700 people to Orange Town Hall.

    Kovacevic, the local resident, said a background actor, apparently portraying a disheveled “town drunk” sitting in the intersection, reminded him of Otis Campbell, the drunken lush portrayed by actor Hal Smith on “The Andy Griffith Show” in the 1960s.

    Several crew members poured into the Millers River Cafe, inside Trailhead, for food and drinks throughout Tuesday morning.

    Joseph Stargensky, a freelance location manager working for Hulu, previously said Hulu has ordered 10 episodes and it takes 10 to 15 days to film one. Other scenes will be filmed at New England Studios in Devens. Kevin Kennedy, the director of community development and planning for Orange, has said film crews will be in town off and on until January 2018.

    “Castle Rock” is being produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot, the production company of J.J. Abrams, creator of “Lost,” “Felicity” and the films “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Mission: Impossible.”

    Did you go over to check it out? I wanted to take a ride out there today, but it's probably a good hour from where I live so I didn't make it out there. I'd love to at some point before they're done filming though.

    Heather, it's your duty to go out there and bring us a full report with pictures.

    The Hulu anthology series has added The Leftovers and The Defenders actor Scott Glenn as a series regular. He'll play Alan Pangborn, a retired sheriff who presided over some of the darkest years in Castle Rock's checkered history — a Kingian icon at the center of Needful Things and The Dark Half.

    Crews working on “Castle Rock,” an upcoming series based on the works of Stephen King, were back in Orange this week, returning to town to shoot scenes for the series’ second episode.

    Police officers helped guide traffic through the intersection of South Main and East River streets, where professionals set up shop on Thursday for scenes filmed in and around one of the two 15,000-square-foot brick buildings belonging to Gary Moise, who owns the Orange Trading Co. Filming was conducted on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

    Location manager Alex Berard said on Thursday he could not disclose the content of the scenes being filmed, though more filming was slated for Ball Street later in the day. He said a new episode is filmed every two weeks. Some filming is done at New England Studios in Devens. Hulu, a subscription video-on-demand service, has ordered 10 episodes of “Castle Rock,” an original suspense/thriller.

    Carts of equipment and supplies packed the sidewalk across the street from the Post Office and crew members buzzed around making sure the operation was running smoothly. Equipment consisted mostly of trunks and cases, one of which was labeled “Period Eyewear.”

    One of the brick buildings was rebranded as Schwall Wooden Mill Co., while the other was temporarily called the Katahdin Thread & Dye Co. A Jeep Grand Wagoneer with “Sweet Chariot Taxi” written on the sides sat parked in the intersection.

    Castle Rock is a fictional town in Maine (King’s home state) that the writer has used in much of his work. According to Hulu, the town has been featured in “Cujo,” “The Dark Half,” and “Needful Things,” as well as the novella “The Body” and other short stories.

    Recruited talent includes Melanie Lynskey, perhaps most known for playing Rose on the sitcom “Two and a Half Men,” André Holland, from the Academy Award-winning film “Moonlight,” Sissy Spacek, famous for her role as the title character in the 1976 film adaptation of Stephen King’s “Carrie,” and Jane Levy, who starred in the ABC comedy series “Suburgatory,” have also signed on.

    Kevin Kennedy, the director of community development and planning for Orange, has said film crews will be in town off and on until January 2018.

    Terry O’Quinn has to go back… to working with J.J. Abrams.

    The Lost alum is reuniting with the storied ABC drama’s co-creator via a starring role in Hulu’s upcoming psychological-horror drama series Castle Rock, which counts Abrams and Stephen King as EPs.

    Castle Rock (named after the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his works) blends “the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved stories, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland,” per producers.

    O’Quinn, whose recent TV gigs include stints on now-axed dramas The Blacklist: Redemption and Secrets and Lies, will play Dale Lacy, a pillar of the Castle Rock community. The cast also includes André Holland, Scott Glenn, Sissy Spacek, Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy and Bill Skarsgard.

    The news was first reported by our sister site Deadline.
