Talk about a movie with buzz.

Maggie Gyllenhaal has signed on for the indie film Hysteria – a romantic comedy set in Victorian London about the invention of the vibrator, Variety reports.

Gyllenhaal, 32, will play the daughter of a doctor, who, with his young colleague (Hugh Dancy) treats cases of female hysteria … with a new electrical device, according to Variety.
