Kate Beckinsale (“Underworld”) is in talks to star in “Eliza Graves”, a pic based on the Edgar Allen Poe-created character.
The Psychological thriller is set up at Nu Image/Millennium with Brad Anderson (“The Machinist”) onboard to direct.
Heat Vision reports :
Beckinsale will play the title character of Eliza, 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.
A June 21 production start date in Bulgaria is penciled in.
Among the producers, some guy named Mel Gibson.
