Another week, another new Elisabeth Moss project. They’re just coming non-stop at this point and although it may seem like it, I’m not complaining. Moss delivered a terrific performance in The Invisible Man earlier this year (Yeah, that was in 2020. Feels like a lifetime ago!), and now she’s reconnecting with Blumhouse for a new psychological thriller, an adaptation of Virginia Feito’s upcoming novel, Mrs. March.
Thankfully, this has nothing to do with the comedy Miss March that you forgot about from 2009.
Deadline reports will star in Mrs. March, playing “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.”
Nobody unravels quite like Elisabeth Moss, so this casting is already perfect. Feito will pen the screenplay, adapting her own novel which hits shelves next week. Moss will produce through her Love and Squalor Pictures label, along with Jason Blum of 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. 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,” Moss said in a statement. “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 honored to be in the Blumhouse family.”
No word on a director, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Moss bring in one of the many talented filmmakers she’s worked with on The Handmaid’s Tale, which has a fourth season coming up soon. Next up for her is Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, followed by Taika Waititi’s Next Goal Wins. She also has thriller Run Rabbit Run, ax murderer miniseries Candy, neo-noir series Black Match, and Apple TV+ series The Shining Girls. Told you she was busy.
