Blumhouse and Elisabeth Moss and her Love and Squalor Pictures production company are developing the book Mrs. March into a feature film. Moss will star in the feature which is based on Virginia Feito’s diabolical psychological thriller by the same name. The story tells 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. In addition to penning the novel, Feito will also write the screenplay.

“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,” Moss said in a statement.

“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, on the opportunity to team with Moss for the upcoming thriller.

As for the novel, Mrs. March is set to hit bookstore shelves in the United States in August 2021 via Liveright, an imprint of W.W. Norton & Company. On the production side of filming, Elisabeth Moss and Lindsey McManus will produce for Love and Squalor Pictures, with Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Lastly, Feito, Carla Hacken, and Bea Seqeira are executive producing.
