Elisabeth Moss knows a good thing when she sees it. Having worked with Blumhouse on “The Invisible Man,” the actress saw how the production company is able to take a thriller with a small budget and turn it into a global hit. And so, she’s keen on replicating that success with the upcoming feature, “Mrs. March.”
According to THR, Blumhouse has signed on with Elisabeth Moss to produce a new thriller based on Virginia Feito’s upcoming novel, “Mrs. March.” In addition to starring in the film, Moss will also produce alongside Blumhouse through her Love and Squalor Pictures production company.
“Mrs. March” tells the story of an Upper East Side housewife that begins to watch her life fall apart after she begins to suspect that the villain of her author husband’s newest novel is based on her. Feito will also join the project to adapt her novel for the big screen.
“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,” said Moss. “As a character, she is fascinating, complex and deeply human and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into her. ‘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.”
Blumhouse founder Jason Blum added, “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. Lindsey and Elisabeth have impeccable taste, when they brought us ‘Mrs. March’ we jumped at the chance to work with them.”
It’s unclear when production might begin on “Mrs. March,” as there’s not even a director attached at the moment. That being said, Blumhouse is known for its quick timelines, and depending on Moss’ schedule, we could be seeing this feature sooner rather than later.
