Stonehearst Asylum – formerly known as Eliza Graves – will see an October 24th release from Millennium Entertainment. This is the film we’ve been tracking for some time that’s directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9, The Machinist) and stars Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess and Ben Kingsley.
Loosely based on The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, the film will center on a Harvard Medical School graduate (Sturgess) who takes a job at an insane asylum, unaware of the fact that it has been taken over by its occupants.
Joseph Gangemi (Fear Itself, Wind Chill) provided the screenplay. Thanks to Fangoria for the heads-up and a look at this artwork.
