Total Recall and Underworld‘s Kate Beckinsale, pictured, is in negotiations to star in Eliza Graves, a psychological thriller from Nu Image/Millennium, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Brad Anderson, whose thriller The Call opens today, is directing the tale that is loosely based on one of Edgar Allan Poe’s early works, a 1945 short story titled The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether.
Beckinsale will play the title character of Eliza, a Harvard Medical School grad who takes a job at an insane asylum, falling for one of the doctors but then discovering that the occupants have taken it over. Joe Gangemi wrote the script.
A June 21 production start date in Bulgaria is penciled in.
Producing are Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, Mark Amin, Cami Winikoff and Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli. David Higgins, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are executive producing.
