A Cure for Wellness: Jason Isaacs Joins Verbinski’s Horror Return

Gore Verbinski is returning to horror. 13 years after The Ring, the Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker is toning down the blockbuster spectacle for a supernatural scare film set at a wellness spa. Dane DeHaan and the incredibly named Mia Goth are set to star, with Jason Isaacs newly added as the villain. 

In A Cure for Wellness, DeHaan will star as “an employee 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.” Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac, Vol. II) plays “a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director’s dark designs for her.” THR reports Isaacs (FuryHarry Potter films) is said spa director, described as aristocratic (but likely without those Malfoy locks). 

Production on A Cure for Wellness (written by Justin Haythe) gets underway this June.
