During the Berlin Festival, it was revealed that are plans for The Secret Scripture shooting to start in late May in Ireland with Thaddeus O’Sullivan directing.
Voltage Pictures is currently in Berlin for set international sells, Variety is reporting.
The novel, published in 2008, centers on a 100-year-old woman who has been in a soon-to-be-demolished mental hospital in Ireland for half her life and a psychiatrist tries to understand why she is there. The woman has been keeping an autobiography — covering Ireland’s upheavals during the 1920s and 1930s — under the floorboard in her room.

The Hollywood Reporter just reported that Thaddeus O’Sullivan has come aboard to direct The Secret Scripture, a drama which has Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave attached to star.
The Ireland-centric story centers on a 100-year old woman who has been in a mental hospital since World War Two and with the facility closing, a psychiatrist tries to piece together why the woman is there, not knowing she has been hiding a diary under the floorboards.
Chastain and Redgrave are to play younger and older versions of the woman, detailing the scars the Presbyterian woman suffered during Ireland’s civil war and her harsh abuse by a priest.

Universal has today announced a brace of new release dates, including Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak set for October 16, 2015.
Starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam, it’s a new direction for the filmmaker, and we know have an official logline for the movie that seems to find del Toro kicking new life in the haunted house genre: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. Spooky!
