Gore Verbinski looked like he was set to take over Hollywood thanks to the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, but thanks to the failure of The Long Ranger and a reputation for going massively over-budget, he’s decided to set his sights slightly cheaper for his next movie.
He’s planning a horror film called A Cure For Wellness, which THR reports has now added Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth to its cast.
Justin Haythe wrote the script, which ‘tells the story of an employee (DeHaan) who is sent to rescue his boss from a European “wellness spa” but soon realizes he’s trapped, and discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients. Goth, who is in negotiations for the role, will play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director’s dark designs for her.’
The plan is to start shooting this June in Europe. It’s a return to horror for Verbinski who may have had some success with Mousehunt and The Mexican, but really broke through with the American version of The Ring.
