‘The Darkness’ Gets An International Distributor; Mary Elizabeth Winstead To Star

From Sunshine Cleaning to a hotly anticipated thriller? That’s apparently what writer Megan Holley has done with her latest bit of writing.

Screen Daily is reporting that HanWay has picked up the international rights to Holley’s thriller The Darkness, which is set to star Mary Elizabeth Winstead with Daniel Stamm aboard as director.

The film follows the story of “a young American student working for a charismatic tutor in an English manor house who becomes convinced that she and the children she is warding are being haunted.” It also happens to be based on Henry James‘ iconic novel, Turn of the Screw. Talk about a pedigree.

Overall, this thing really couldn’t get much better. Winstead is a fantastic actress, and the pedigree for a great thriller is all but there in the source material. I’m a rather big fan of Holley as a writer, so everything is pointing towards this being one hell of a thriller.

What do you think?
