News surfaced back in May of 2016 that a movie based on Sarah Winchester and her legendary Bay Area home would be coming to the big screen.
We also learned that Academy Award winner, Helen Miren, is set to star as Winchester in the film.
In August, we learned more about the project and that Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby) would be co-starring. As for the film itself, it’s being described as a “supernatural thriller”.
When skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is dispatched to the estate to evaluate [Winchester’s] state of mind, he discovers that her obsession may not be so insane after all. WINCHESTER will take audiences inside the labyrinth like house that is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
Per IMDB, the movie will start filming on location at both the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose & in Australia starting in March.
We should expect to see “Winchester” in theaters by 2018.
UPDATE 3/3/2017: We reached out to a rep at the Winchester Mystery House and received word that filming is in fact set to begin soon though due to the confidential nature of the project they can not say exactly when. Keep an eye on their facebook page for announcements regarding the film.
