The Yellow Wallpaper 2010

Posted by Glennis Byron on October 21, 2010 in News tagged with , ,

Another film of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper has been made and is now in post-production stage. Directed by Logan Thomas, it stars Aric Cushing and Juliet Landau, and is due for release in 2010.

The synopsis, given on the official website, suggests this is going to be made into much more of an obvious ghost story:

Charlotte and John Weiland, along with Charlotte’s sister Jennie, find themselves destitute after a fire claims all of their belongings, their money, and their only child Sarah. A solicitor rents them a large, remote house in the countryside where they attempt to recover from the aftermath of the fire, and the death of their little girl. Charlotte soon believes her daughter is in the house, and alienates herself from her husband and sister by retreating to the strange yellow wallpapered attic.

Was it originally an attic, or is that cue Gilbert and Gubar?

The trailer doesn’t seem to have been uploaded yet, but there are a couple of clips up which seem strangely uninspired:
