Max to direct Shell

Elisabeth Moss is to play the lead role in ‘Shell’.

The 40-year-old actress is to star in the thriller alongside Kate Hudson and Kaia Gerber.

Max Minghella is to direct the film and will reunite with his ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ co-star Moss on the project – which is set in a near future where humanity’s obsession with youth and beauty has been taken to new extremes.

In the movie, struggling actress Samantha (Moss) is given the opportunity of a free trial at Shell, a pioneering company that promises to keep clients looking youthful forever.

Samantha’s life and career is transformed by the treatment and she develops a friendship with glamorous Shell CEO Zoe Shannon (Hudson).

However, when a string of former Shell patients start to go missing in mysterious circumstances – including the social media star Chloe Benson (Gerber) – Samantha begins to fear that she could be in danger herself.
