Gore Verbinski may have left horror behind after directing one of the very few US remakes that worked, but it seems he's coming back to the genre that made him his career.
A Cure For Wellness sees Dane DeHaan play an ambitious company executive who is sent to Switzerland to bring home the mentally destabilised CEO of a major corporation. Whilst there, it's made clear that all is not as it seems and there's a-doings going on in the 'wellness clinic'.
Before long, DeHaan is battling to maintain his sanity whilst trying to uncover the dark secret at the core of the clinic. As mentioned, Verbinski's a dab hand at horror and it looks like A Cure For Wellness is going to be a welcome return to the genre for him. As well as this, you've also got a screenplay from Justin Haythe, who previously did the screenplay for Revolutionary Road with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
The vibe seems to be modern-day gothic horror and, to be honest, there aren't enough of them around anymore. Take a look.
A Cure For Wellness is slated for release on February 17th, 2017.
