Anything that Kate Beckinsale does that’s even remotely horror related definitely has my attention, which is why this news appealed to me. She’s in negotiations to star in the horror/thriller Eliza Graves based upon some early works of Edgar Allen Poe from Nu Image/Millenium.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kate Beckinsale is in negotiations to star in Eliza Graves, a psychological thriller from Nu Image/Millennium.
Brad Anderson, whose thriller The Call opens today, is directing the tale that is loosely based on one of Edgar Allan Poe’s early works, a 1945 short story titled The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.
Beckinsale will play the title character of Eliza, a Harvard Medical School grad who takes a job at an insane asylum, falling for one of the doctors but then discovering that the occupants have taken it over.
A June 21 production start date in Bulgaria is penciled in.
Producing are Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, Mark Amin, Cami Winikoff and Oren Peli.
David Higgins, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are executive producing. Joe Gangemi wrote the script.
We’ll keep an eye on this one for you as I’m sure there will be more news on this in the near future.
