Netflix has long since passed the point of gaining credibility and is now one of the most respected ways to get your show to an audience. Many big name actors, writers, producers and studios have attached themselves to work with this titan of entertainment.

The latest big name to be recruited to this group is Winona Ryder.

Ryder is currently scheduled to join a supernatural thriller (under the working title of Montauk). The show is being shepherded by the Duffer Brothers (Wayward Pines) and has a series order for eight episodes.

The show centres on the disappearance of a boy in the 80s. Ryder plays the boy’s mother, who attempts to discover his fate, but wanders into a conspiracy, involving government agencies and supernatural forces.

I will admit, I always enjoy a good mystery show with a supernatural twinge to it. I will probably be keeping a close eye on this show to see how it shapes up. Ryder’s casting can only help get the show the attention it (hopefully) will deserve.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
