The folks at 20th Century Fox have picked up a horror script based upon the works of Edith Wharton, so naturally they’ve hired Joe Wright AnthonyMinghella Ben Stiller to direct. That’s right. Ben Stiller is attached to the period horror film, The Mountain. The story is based on Wharton’s Summer and follows a young woman who receives a mysterious brooch from a lover that forces her to look into her past.

Stiller will reunite with Reality Bites scripter Helen Childress for the Rosemary’s Baby-tinged project. There has been zero confirmation of Eddie Vedder‘s involvement from his camp. (Deadline)
