‘Martyrs’ Director Lands Jessica Biel for ‘Tall Man’ Thriller!

A big congrats to Martyrs director Pascal Laugier who is finally set to tell his tale of The Tall Man! Even cooler news as Jessica Biel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity) will star in the French director’s English-language debut! Tall Man is a suspenseful thriller in the vein of the early films of M. Night Shyamalan. Biel plays a woman who must grapple with and track the mysterious figure of The Tall Man who has kidnapped her child. Laugier, who also wrote the film, says “I like to think of The Tall Man as a sort of Panic Room… outside! It is a ‘woman in jeopardy’ movie with a lot of twists and a strong female character that you feel very connected to.” Tall Man is produced by Clement Miserez, (Radar Films) and Steven Schneider (Room 101, Paranormal Activity, Area 51).
