Edgar Allan Poe’s “A Tell-Tale Heart” gets an overhaul in the aptly-titled Tell-Tale. Josh Lucas, the concerned fella you see below in the first photo to be released from the film, stars as a man who receives a heart transplant. He comes to learn his donor was murdered and sets out to find the killer before he becomes the next victim. Brian Cox, Lena Headey and Beatrice Miller join him in the mystery which carries shades of Body Parts.
Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free Productions spearheaded this adaptation which is directed by Michael Cuesta, a Dexter vet. Screenwriter Dave Callaham penned the Platinum Dunes thriller Horsemen.
