Story by Jack Foley

CAPTAIN America star Sebastian Stan has joined the cast of creepy thriller We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

Based on one of the better known stories by Shirley Jackson, a 20th century horror writer best known for her novel The Haunting of Hill House, the film will focus on an isolated family, which has already lost four members to poisoning, that uses rituals and talismans to keep itself away from hostile towns-people.

However, when a distant cousin arrives into this scenario, intent on maliciously securing the family’s fortune, his presence sets into motion a series of events that uncover family secrets. Stan will play the cousin, Charles Blackwood.

Michael Douglas is producing the film, which is being directed by Stacie Passon.

The project marks the first time the story has been adapted for the screen. It was previously translated into a play as well as a musical.

Stan is coming off of Captain America: Civil War, one of the year’s more acclaimed movies that has grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide. He also recently wrapped the indie I’m Not Here with Maika Monroe and JK Simmons but will be back on Winter Soldier duty as part of Avengers: Infinity War early next year.
