A February production start date is planned. Universal Pictures retains an option to join Legendary as a financier.
The gothic horror story centers on a woman who discovers that her husband might not be who he appears to be.

Del Toro wrote the script with Matthew Robbins; Lucinda Coxon recently did a rewrite.
Chastain last starred in the surprise hit horror movie Mama, which was executive produced by del Toro. She is repped by CAA, Mosaic and Hansen, Jacobson.
