After their big success with THE INVISIBLE MAN earlier this year, the actress and the genre factory have a new collaboration on the way.

Blumhouse has announced that Elisabeth Moss will star in MRS. MARCH, which the horror outfit is producing with Moss’ Love and Squalor Pictures. Virginia Feito will script based on her novel (set for publication in August 2021 by Liveright), which is “the story of 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.” Moss and her Love and Squalor partner Lindsey McManus will produce the film alongside Jason Blum, who says, “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, and when they brought us MRS. MARCH we jumped at the chance to work with them.”

Moss says, “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. 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.”
