We Have Always Lived in the Castle Stacie Passon Taissa Farmiga

Less than 24 hours after it was announced that Marvel's Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan would be starring in director Stacie Passon's adaptation of the 1962 Shirley Jackson story WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE, a batch of photos from the set have already arrived online that feature Stan in character, show that the film is a period piece, and reveal that one of his co-stars is Taissa Farmiga of American Horror Story and THE FINAL GIRLS.

Scripted by Passon and Mark Kruger, WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE centers on 

Merricat Blackwood, who lives on the family estate with her sister Constance and her uncle Julian. Not long ago there were seven Blackwoods—until a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one terrible night. Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the curiousity and hostility of the villagers. Their days pass in happy isolation until cousin Charles (Stan) appears. Only Merricat can see the danger, and she must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp.

Stan and Farmiga are joined in the cast by Alexandra Daddario (TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D) and the great Willem Dafoe.

WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE is filming in Ireland and is produced by Michael Douglas, Jared Goldman, Robert Mitas, and Robert Halmi Jr. 

ComingSoon got their hands on 31 pictures from the set, a select few of which I have included in this article.
