Tom Felton (Harry Potter, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) has signed on to star in crime-thriller Therese Raquin.

Felton will star opposite Glenn Glose (Albert Nobbs) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) in the adaptation of Emile Zola’s novel of the same name.

Therese (Olsen) and her lover Laurent murder Camille (Felton), Therese’s husband. After marrying, the couple are visited by Camille’s ghost, slowly turning their love for one another into an all-consuming hatred.

Theatre director Charlie Stratton, who also wrote the adapted screenplay, will make his feature film debut on the film, which is scheduled to shoot later this year.

Felton will next be seen in The Apparition, alongside Ashley Greene (Twilight) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger).
