I loved mystery books as a kid and read everything from the Boxcar Children to Nancy Drew to Encyclopedia Brown. Who doesn't love a good whodunnit?! That's why I'm excited about Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, an all-new film coming to theaters on March 15th from Warner Bros., Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Red 56.
The iconic mystery solving teenager from the classic Nancy Drew books is back with an all-new feature-length film that will keep you guessing until the very end! (PS – Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is one of the original books, too!)
Here's what this movie is all about:
After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter 16-year-old daughter Nancy in River Heights. Nancy is asked by Flora to help solve the ghostly activity at her home, the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs 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 and the Hidden Staircase stars Sophia Lillis (IT and “Sharp Objects”) as Nancy Drew, Sam Trammell (“True Blood” and “This is Us”) as Carson Drew (Nancy's father), Linda Lavin (“The Good Wife” and Alice) as Flora, Andrea Anders (“Joey” and “Better Off Ted”) as Hannah (Nancy's aunt), Laura Slade Wiggins (“Shameless”) as Helen, Zoe Renee (“The Quad”) as George, and Mackenzie Graham (The Purge) as Bess.
