AFM ’10: First Look at Jessica Biel in The Tall Man

From the director of Martyrs

Okay, so we brought you some teaser art from Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man earlier this morning. Well, how about a look, now, at star Jessica Biel? That’s an early peak at the star in the latest film from the director of Martyrs. We’ll have some more images later today. Biel co-stars with Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie and William B. Davis.

In addition to the pic, we have a full synopsis to share:

Cold Rock, U.S.A. – A darkness hovers upon the town: 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. Until one night, waking up with an eerie feeling she goes to her son’s bedroom and find his bed empty. Rushing downstairs she stops dead in her tracks: a huge dark figure stands in the etrance 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? What becomes of the children?

Lauger also scripted the film.
