Elisabeth Moss shot to fame after ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ became a breakout hit for Hulu. She has been nominated for several awards for her performance in the series.
And now, she’s making her name known in the feature world as well. Earlier this year (before the pandemic hit) her film ‘The Invisible Man‘ hit theaters after getting some pretty great reviews from critics.
The horror/thriller went on to make over $130 million at the box office with a budget of just $7 million.
And now Blumhouse wants to work with her again. The Emmy-winning actress will star in the upcoming thriller, Mrs. March, based on the still-unpublished book by Virginia Feito.
Moss will star in the film as the titular character, an Upper East Side housewife who starts to lose her grip on reality when she begins to suspect her novelist husband based the odious central character in his latest bestseller on her.
Moss says she read the novel in one sitting and knew she had to play the character.
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.
Feito will write the script. No word on who will direct, or when it’ll be released, but it likely won’t be until late 2021 or sometime in 2022, considering the novel won’t be released until August 2021.
