Deadline reported, Elisabeth Moss and Michael Stuhlbarg have been cast to star in Shirley.
It’s a feature film about author Shirley Jackson.
Josephine Decker is attached to direct while Sarah Gubbins is set to pen the script.
Merrell’s 2014 novel tells the story of a young couple that moves in with Jackson and her Bennington College professor-husband, Stanley Hyman (Stuhlbarg), in the hopes of starting a new life. Instead, they find themselves fodder for a psycho-drama that inspires Jackson’s next major novel.
