Martyrs Director Begins Shooting Tall Man


Martyrs remake still in the cards

Principal photography has begun on The Tall Man, a mystery thriller written and directed by acclaimed French director Pascal Laugier of Martyrs and starring Jessica Biel.

The film marks Laugier’s English language debut and will shoot for eight weeks in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.

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?

Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis, Samantha Ferris and Jodelle Ferland, round up the cast.

Laugier’s next projects include the remake of Martyrs to be released in the US by 20th Century Fox.
