First Photo of Helen Mirren in The Supernatural WINCHESTER House Thriller

CBS Films has released the first photo of Helen Mirren in the upcoming supernatural thriller based on the story behind the legendary Winchester Mystery House. Mirren plays Sarah Winchester in the film.

Winchester follows the story of firearm heiress Sarah Winchester (Mirren), "who was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester repeating rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24-hour a day, seven days a week construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her 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."

I'm extremely excited about this movie because I've always been fascinated with the Winchester Mystery House. I've visited it a couple of times already and it's so intriguing, especially the story behind the house. 

The movie is being directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination) from a script they co-wrote with Tom Vaughan. The movie also stars Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson. Winchester is expected to be released in 2018.
