Harry Potter stars David Thewlis and Brendan Gleeson join Brad Anderson’s horror ‘Eliza Graves’




Due to begin production next week is the new horror from Session 9 director Brad Anderson. The script for Eliza Graves was written some fifteen years ago by Joseph Gangemi, and he adapted it from the Edgar Allan Poe short story, The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.

Deadline is reporting that David Thewlis and Brendan Gleeson have now also joined the very impressive cast, but their roles are not known yet. Both actors appeared in the Harry Potter films, with Thewlis playing Remus Lupin (above) and Gleeson playing the role of Alastor ‘Mad-Eye’ Moody (below).

The two British actors join the already cast Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine, Kate Beckinsale and Ben Kingsley.

Millennium Films are behind the thriller, and Jim Sturgess “will star as a Harvard Medical School grad who takes a job at a mental institution which the inmates have taken over and are posing as doctors. He becomes obsessed with the title character (Beckinsale), one of the patients.

Paranormal Activity’s Oren Peli was attached to direct, however he pulled out and Session 9, The Machinist and The Call director Brad Anderson took over directing duties back in November.

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.
