Looking like it’s taking the Beastly route, THR scored the first three images from The Tell Tale Heart, the latest adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story.
The haunting tale of a man who murders an old man, and then hides his body under his floorboards only to be driven insane by the sound of his still-beating heart has been adapted into an upcoming film starring Patrick John Flueger (Footloose), Rose McGowan (Rosewood Lane, Scream, Grindhouse) and Peter Bogdanovich.
The site reports that a tale of romance has been added to Poe’s dark story for the film adaptation. Bogdanovich will play the one-eyed old man.
Director John La Tier‘s adaptation is currently filming in New Orleans. Also joining the cast is Jacob Vargas (Devil, Traffic, Jarhead), Damon Whitaker (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai) and Kirk Fox (Forgetting Sarah Marshall).
