Dane DeHaan & 'Nymphomaniac' Star Mia Goth Lead Gore Verbinski Horror 'A Cure For Wellness'

You might think with seaweed wraps, soothing sounds, luxurious environs, and a regimen of pampering and care, a spa would be the most unlikely setting for a horror movie. Perhaps that’s what makes the idea behind Gore Verbinski‘s next film so perfect.

THR reports that Dane DeHaan and “Nymphomaniac” star Mia Goth will pair up for “A Cure For Wellness.” Penned by Justin Haythe (“Revolutionary Road,” “The Lone Ranger“), the story follows a young man sent to rescue his boss from the sinister doings of a “wellness spa,” only to wind up trapped as well. Yikes. Never has exfoliating been more terrifying.

This sounds like a interesting move for Verbinski, away from bloated blockbusters to something more in line with his leaner genre roots and films like “The Ring,” “The Mexican,” and “The Weather Man.” Production starts this summer and you’ll see it cinemas courtesy of Fox.
