Production officially kicks off in Bulgaria this June and talented director Brad Anderson (‘The Machinist’, ‘The Call’) is the man behind the camera. What are we talking about? New horror thriller ‘Eliza Graves’ of course. British actor Jim Sturgess -below (‘Heartless’, ‘Cloud Atlas’) is the latest to sign up for the project and will be joining the already cast Kate Beckinsale (‘Total Recall’) who takes the title role. The tale, based on the short story ‘The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether’ by Edgar Allan Poe, revolves around a mental institution where the patients have pulled the old switcheroo on the doctors and have reversed roles. Anderson will helm from the adapted script penned by Joseph Gangemi (‘Wind Chill’).
“Eliza Graves is a patient at a mental institution in which the inmates have taken over and are posing as doctors. She becomes the object of affection of a newly arrived Harvard Medical School grad who has no idea of the topsy-turvy world he just entered.”
