Winstead Enters "The Darkness"

February 10, 2012

Mary Elizabeth Winstead will star in the psychological horror thriller “The Darkness” says Screen Daily.

Somewhat based upon the classic novella “The Turn of the Screw“, by Henry James–the story follows a young American student working for a charismatic tutor in an English manor house. She soon becomes convinced that she and the children she is loooking after are being haunted.

The story was adapted into a 1950 play and its 1961 film adaptation called “The Innocents” starring Deborah Kerr –that film–is considered one of the best psychological thrillers of all time

The Last Exorcism“‘s Daniel Stamm helms the film from a script by Megan Holley (“Sunshine Cleaning“).

Joe Neurauter, Felipe Marino and Ben Forkner are set to produce.

Production kicks off in Europe this Summer.
