Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase (2019, D: Shea) S: Sophia Lillis





Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, an all-new film coming to theaters on March 15 from Warner Bros., Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Red 56.

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 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!

This looks charming. Probably right up my 11 year old daughter’s alley.

My niece is a big Nancy Drew fan. I'd love to take her, but there's no theaters showing this within an hour of my house. I only see 3 theaters playing it in the Miami/Ft Lauderdale area (1 screen each).

The Emma Roberts version wasn’t bad, this looks more straight and less like a parody.

Looks cute. Amy Adams Jr. has been in some pretty dark stuff so it’s nice to see her in a lighter, fun movie.

I found it odd that in a movie where 16 year old Lillis is playing Nancy and her other teen friends are played by teens that they cast 30 year Laura Wiggins as the Helen, the popular teen. She was doing very very TV-MA material on Shameless back in 2011.

Katt Shea directed this? Didn't she used to make stripper movies for Roger Corman?

Looks like this is being fast-tracked to VOD. According to Vudu and Movies Anywhere, it'll be available for purchase this coming Tuesday (3/26).

That’s not a surprise. It was only playing at AMC theaters, with no box office reports.
