Kate Beckinsale in talks to star in Brad Anderson’s upcoming psychological thriller ‘Eliza Graves’




I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, put Kate Beckinsale in anything and I’ll watch it. Put Kate Beckinsale in a new psychological thriller by director Brad Anderson, AND based on an Edgar Allan Poe story, and I want to see it like yesterday!

Eliza Graves is based on an early 1945 Poe short story called  “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether”, and originally Paranormal Activity’s Oren Peli was attached to direct. Session 9, The Machinist and The Call director Brad Anderson took over directing duties back in November, and now Nu Image and Millenium are in talks with Beckinsale to have her play the title role.

If she agrees, Beckinsale would play  “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.” Production on the film is expected to begin on June 21st in Bulgaria.

Producing are Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, Mark Amin, Cami Winikoff and Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli. David Higgins, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are executive producing.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
