Elizabeth Moss has been in plenty of Shirley Jackson adaptations, including The Lottery, but she’ll become the author herself in her newest film. Alongside Michael Stuhlbarg, Moss will star in Shirley, based off the 2014 novel by Susan Scarf Merrell that follows a graduate student and his wife who move in with Jackson and her husband, Stanley Edgar Hyman.
The film is set to be directed by Josephine Decker with the screenplay written by Sarah Gubbins. There is no estimated release date for Shirley yet, but filming is scheduled to start this summer.
