Not even a global pandemic can stop the cinematic powerhouse that is Blumhouse.
After working with Elisabeth Moss on The Invisible Man, this time they’re even teaming up with her production company (Love and Squalor Pictures) to adapt Virginia Feito’s still unreleased novel for the big screen.
Moss is set to take on the role of Mrs. March, the wife of a writer living in New York, who becomes suspicious that the horrible titular character in his latest book is based on her. Perhaps following in the footsteps of Cecilia Kass of The Invisible Man, it looks like Moss’s character in Mrs. March will start to spiral and lose her grip on reality as a result of these events in their relationship.
I read Virginia’s novel in one sitting and was so captured by it I knew I had to make it and play Mrs. March. As a character, she is fascinating, complex, and deeply human and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into her.Elisabeth Moss
Founder and CEO of Blumhouse, Jason Blum, said that “not only is Elisabeth one of the finest actors of her generation, but she’s an unabashed fan of genre material and an incredible collaborator.” Echoing his statement, Moss went on to mention that “Mrs. March is exactly the kind of engaging and challenging female led project that Love And Squalor Pictures is built to make. As a company, we are thrilled to make our debut announcement in the features space as partners with Blumhouse.”
The novel of the same name is set to be released in America in 2021, but there’s no word on a cinematic release date just yet. Another book and film added to the read/watch list then? Looks like it.
