French director Pascal Laugier (‘Martyrs’) is back as the production on his new thriller ‘The Tall Man’ has kicked off principal photography in British Columbia, Canada. It stars the incredibly fit Jessica Biel (below) alongside Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Jodelle Ferland. Laugier wrote the story as well as helming the project, so we’re in safe hands all round. Fans of the fantastic French horror ‘Martyrs’, including myself, may be in two minds about one of Laugier’s next projects which will be an English language remake of his original. Hmmm, what d’ya reckon?
The shoot for ‘The Tall Man’ will continue for 8 weeks and ‘The Tall Man’ marks Laugier’s first English-spoken movie.
“Set in the town of Cold Rock, The Tall Man is a story of the haunting secrets that hide behind closed doors. With children 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. When a woman’s son is taken, the chase is on and with it the quest for answers: who is the Tall Man and what happens to the children?”
