Jessica Biel battles a boogeyman in The Tall Man

5 years agoby:

Despite her thermonuclear hotness and action-ready physique, Jessica Biel can't seem to get major Hollywood roles besides a few minutes of screentime amongst the machismo of THE A-TEAM.

So the actress is taking her body and business indie for the mystery thriller THE TALL MAN, currently shooting in Canada. The movie comes from French writer-director Pascal Laugier, who made a mark with the challenging MARTYRS. Laugier, who was once attached to the now-delayed HELLRAISER reboot, is making his English-language debut on the movie.

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 project is described as "an outdoor PANIC ROOM" (??) and a "suspenseful thriller in the vein of M. Night Shyamalan’s earlier films" (but not his more recent rubbish, obviously). The movie also features Stephen McHattie (PONTYPOOL, 300), William B. Davis ("X-Files" Cigarette Smoking Man), Samantha Ferris ("Supernatural") and Jodelle Ferland (SILENT HILL).

Extra Tidbit: Seriously, they couldn't find more for her to do in THE A-TEAM? Not that it would've made it much better, but still...

Martyrs is one of the best horror flicks of the decade and I've been patiently waiting for Pascal Laugier's next film so this is great news!

She's hot and all, but a very bland actress. Maybe an indie movie or two will rediscover her chops and she'll get back in the game.

Sounds good, but can they change the name? The one and only Tall Man is in the Phantasm flicks. Nothin' like Biel in a white T.

That a$$ was made for sex!

I can't believe she's still with that backstreet boy. What a waste of a hot woman. I'll see this movie just to watch her run. Oh my!

Damn, thought this was a "Phantasm" story...

...since "The Tall Man" is the boogeyman in that film.
