First Look: Jessica Biel in Pascal Laugier's Thriller 'The Tall Man'
Apparently anything we've written about French filmmaker Pascal Laugier (of Martyrs) over the last few years has been about the Hellraiser remake now in the works, which Laugier was attached to for a while, but we've never talked about his next film that he's shooting right now. Laugier's new thriller is called The Tall Man and it stars Jessica Biel as well as Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Jodelle Ferland. That photo and logo above come from ShockTillYouDrop, who got their hands on some media while browsing through AFM this morning. Alas, that's all we've got for now, but more photos should come later.
Here's the setup for The Tall Man: A darkness hovers upon the town… children have gone missing over the years leaving neither a clue nor a witness. Superstitious locals talk of The Tall Man, a legendary, mysterious dark figure who takes children away never to be seen again. Biel plays a nurse who wakes up one night and finds "a huge dark figure stand[ing] in the entrance holding her son David." So now the chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is The Tall man? What becomes of the children? Intriguing premise, I'm very curious to see/hear more about this. The indie is shooting now and also looking for a distributor at AFM this week. We'll keep you updated on anything we hear. STYD says they'll have more photos, so check back later.
