What's the deal with Pascal Laugier's THE TALL MAN? This highly anticipated follow-up to Laugier's MARTYRS has been teasing us for a long ass time now with no sight of a release. Thankfully today's update says TALL MAN will be coming our way soon!
The news spreading across these here interwebs is that THE TALL MAN is indeed finished and is actually hitting the Berlin Film Festival later this month! Natch! So at least we'll have first word on if this thing is any good by the end of the month. As far as a wider release is concerned... yeah we still have no word on that.
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?
THE TALL MAN stars Jessica Biel (below), Teach Grant, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Jodelle Ferland. Hopefully with it's premiere at the Berlin Film Festival comes news on a wider release. We'll be on the lookout for any other TALL MAN updates in the coming weeks so be sure to check back regularly to see if anything pops!
