Following on from this year’s successful horror movie The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss is set to re-team with Blumhouse to develop a feature film adaptation of the upcoming Virginia Feito psychological thriller novel Mrs. March – which is set to hit bookshelves in the United States in August 2021.
Mrs. March follows a polished Upper East Side housewife who unravels when she begins to suspect the detestable protagonist of her husband’s latest bestselling novel is based on her.
According to Deadline, Moss will play the title character in the movie, and she’ll also be producing Mrs. March through her production company Love and Squalor Pictures. Feito will write the screenplay and executive produce with Jason Blum producing the adaptation for Blumhouse.
“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,” Moss said in a statement. 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. Having worked with Jason on US and the company on The Invisible Man, I am constantly struck by their creativity and intelligence. Jason Blum is a powerhouse force in the world of storytelling and I am personally honoured to be in the Blumhouse family.”
“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,” said Jason Blum, Blumhouse founder and CEO.
