Michael Stuhlbarg, last seen portraying real-life characters in Trumbo and Steve Jobs, is in negotiations to join the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s untitled movie for Fox Searchlight.
Del Toro is planning a shoot this summer and is deep in the casting stages. Octavia Spencer and Sally Hawkins are already in negotiations to be on the roll call.
Details are being kept in a bunker, but the project, written by del Toro, is described as a mysterious and magical journey set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963, with an otherworldly love story at the center of it.

The actor will appear in Marvel’s Doctor Strange and his next big-screen stop will be in Story of Your Life, the new film from Sicario director Denis Villeneuve.
He is repped by ICM Partners, Viking Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
