‘Captain America’s’ Sebastian Stan to Star in Thriller ‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle’

Marvel universe star Sebastian Stan has come on board the independent thriller “We Have Always Lived in the Castle,” with shooting starting in Dublin.

Taissa Farmiga, Alexandra Daddario, Joanne Crawford and Willem Dafoe are also starring in a Further Films production in association with Great Point Media. Producers are Michael Douglas, Jared Goldman, Robert Mitas and Robert Halmi, Jr.

Stacie Passon is directing from a script she wrote with Mark Kroger, adapted from Shirley Jackson’s horror novel about an isolated family which has lost four members to poisoning and uses rituals and talismans to keep itself away from hostile townspeople. Stan will play a distant cousin, intent on maliciously securing the family’s fortune whose arrival sets in motion the uncovering of family secrets.

The novel was published in 1962 and was adapted into a play in 1966 by Hugh Wheeler.

Stan plays James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes/Winter Soldier in the three Captain America movies and will appear in “Avengers: Infinity War” next year. He also appeared in “The Martian” and recently wrapped “I’m Not Here” with Maika Monroe and J.K. Simmons.

Stan is repped by ICM Partners, Brookside Artists Management and Lon Sorensen at Sloane, Offer.
