There’s a bit of buzz happening this morning surrounding a release date for The Tall Man, the latest film from the director of Martyrs, Pascal Laugier. Jessica Biel Central reports that producer Kevin DeWalt has confirmed an August 31st release for the film, which stars Biel.
Image reps have yet to confirm this date, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Synopsis: A darkness hovers upon the town of Cold Rock. Children have 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. Julia (Biel) is a nurse living in Cold Rock who doesn’t believe in legends. That is, until one night, she wakes with an eerie feeling only to find her son’s bed empty. Frantic, she rushes downstairs where she stops dead in her tracks – a huge dark figure stands in the entrance holding her son, David. Driven by pure instinct, Julia rushes after them willing to do whatever it takes to get her son back. The chase is on and with it, the quest for answers. Who is the Tall Man? And what has become of the children?
