Image Entertainment has picked up the US distribution rights for Pascal Laugier’s The Tall Man on all platforms. While there’s no release date yet, it seems as if this film’s protracted journey to the screen is almost over.
“Image Entertainment, Inc. has acquired the U.S. rights including theatrical, home entertainment, digital, VOD and broadcast, to the new thriller, THE TALL MAN. The film premiered recently at the Berlin Film Festival and is being shown at this year’s SXSW Festival.”
Laugier’s follow-up to Martyrs stars Jessica Beil, Teach Grant, William Davis, Samantha Ferris, Jodelle Ferland, and Stephen McHattie. “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?”
