Oscar-nominated actor Frank Langella will no longer lead the upcoming series from Netflix and Mike Flanagan, The Fall of the House of Usher, following an investigation into reported misconduct on set.

The series is currently about halfway through production. Scenes featuring Roderick Usher, who Langella was set to portray, will be reshot once a replacement has been cast.

The limited series, inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe, receives its title from the short story of the same name originally published in 1893. While details on the series are scarce in its beginning, Netflix did announce that the series will tell its story across eight episodes. Flanagan describes the limited series as a “modern remix” of some of Poe’s most well-known stories.

Flanagan will be the writer for the fifth series under Intrepid Films for Netflix following the success of The Haunting of Hill HouseThe Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass and upcoming series The Midnight Club. In addition to writing, Flanagan will direct half of the series’ episodes with frequent collaborator Michael Fimognari directing the other half. Trevor Macy will serve as executive producer.

This news was first reported by Deadline. You can follow along with our House of Usher coverage here, including previous casting announcements to check out the impressive ensemble.
