Dane DeHaan a cure for wellness

The name Gore Verbinski has complicated connotations. For a while, it inspired excitement in film fans. Now, that excitement cooled considerably, thanks in part to the director’s multiple years making bad, big-budget Disney movies. He’s trying to reclaim his name, though, and just took a significant step towards doing so.

Verbinski has committed to making a supernatural horror film called A Cure For Wellness, which follows a man who travels into the Swiss Alps to find his boss, only to be trapped in a mental institution. Dane DeHaan will play that main character and actress Mia Goth is in talks as well. The film will be written by Justin Haythe, who did The Lone Ranger with Verbinski but also wrote Sam Mendes’ underrated Revolutionary Road. Read more about A Cure for Wellness below. Read More »
