Nancy Drew is Adding Up Clues in New HIDDEN STAIRCASE Clip
Sophia Lillis (It, Sharp Objects) is hot on the trail of her latest mystery in this new clip for Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. It looks like someone has broken into the house she is living in and has given her a scare, and she is trying to get to the bottom of who is was, how they got in, and why they were there.
The Nancy Drew books were so much fun for me when I was a kid. I loved that I never saw the twists and turns coming, but that they were all being solved by a girl about my age. When there weren’t a whole of major female role models, Nancy Drew was there. She was ahead of her time, and the books totally hold up through any decade, in my opinion. So I think it is smart and fun that this movie can reintroduce the iconic character to a new generation.

Sam Trammell (True Blood) plays Nancy’s father, Carson, with Linda Lavin (Alice) as Flora, the owner of the haunted house, and Andrea Anders (Joey, The Stepford Wives) starring as Nancy’s Aunt Hannah.
