Pascal Laugier's The Tall Man, starring Jessica Biel, hits US theaters this summer

A while ago we brought you the good news that THE TALL MAN - the latest film from MARTYRS director Pascal Laugier - got picked up by Image Entertainment for a US release. The only thing we didn't know then was a release date. Well, now we do! Producer Kevin DeWalt just confirmed that the film will hit theaters on August 31st. We're still to find out whether it will be a full-blown theater release, or a limited run, but hey - still great news all around.

A darkness hovers upon the town of Cold Rock. Children have 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. Julia (Biel) is a nurse living in Cold Rock who doesn’t believe in legends. That is, until one night, she wakes with an eerie feeling only to find her son’s bed empty. Frantic, she rushes downstairs where she stops dead in her tracks – a huge dark figure stands in the entrance holding her son, David. Driven by pure instinct, Julia rushes after them willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back. The chase is on and with it, the quest for answers. Who is the Tall Man? And what has become of the children?

Written and directed by Pascal Laugier,  THE TALL MAN stars Jessica Biel (below), Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, Jakob Davies, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Katherine Ramdeen.
